Mills-on-the-Air 2018 - GB2NW

Members of West Kent ARS were invited to operate in Mills-on-the-Air for 2018 from Nutley Windmill, on the Ashdown Forest, using the callsign GB2NW, Nutley Windmill. The Mill is a working example of an open trestle post mill dating back to the 1500s.

Below are a selection of photos taken over the weekend the 12/13th of May 2018, where members setup a tent for operating HF bands using the clubs doublet aerial, while a couple of members from Cray Valley (Kevin M0KSJ and Richard G8ITB) joined us for the weekend operating on 4m and 2m, FM and SSB.

The weather on the Saturday was very wet while on Sunday we did see some sun though the ground remained quite wet.
