TOTA (Tank on the Air)

Saturday 25th June saw four members of TARG at Southend Airport operating in commemoration of Armed Forces Day from the tank shown in the picture. Band conditions were testing to say the least but around 20 contacts were made on HF and by using GB7ISX Gateway, contact was made with two other Vulcan groups.

The photo shows Maggie M7LCF and Andrew M0IXY working HF at the rear of the tank.

Special Event Station – Jubilee Long Weekend

TARG have done it again – the return of our Annual weekend away. Antennas, radios and, when DX disappears on 20m as the sun goes down, out comes the lemonaide. Clubs members have descended on a campsite near Wickford for a weekend of social radio. Caravans, mobile homes, tents (owned or borrowed) making the ideal venue for outdoor opreating (and learning).

Using the Special Event Call-sign GB2PJE (Platinum Jubilee Event), the stations are open to contacts that you can add to your Log Book.
