Activity Day 2013

The photos on this page were taken during the WKARS Activity day on the 24th of August 2013.

The event was primarily to test the clubs new mast system for HF and VHF aerials, which had been constructed by Richard G8CDD from his years of experience. 

In addition to testing the assembly and erection of the mast, the event provided WKARS club members with the ability to do some on-air operating as well as time to socialise around the BBQ and catering marquee. 

The event was held during a Bank Holiday weekend, which provided typical holiday weather when everyone got wet in the rain at some point during the day. In spite of this the event was well supported by WKARS members and friends and was successful in proving the ability of club members to do a field event with the new mast.
