A  trip  to  Galleywood  heritage  centre  

On  the  12th  of  June    

A  small  group  of  Essex amateurs took  a  trip  to  the  Galleywood  Heritage  centre,  on  this  day  Tim  Wander  was  doing  one  of  his  ever  popular  talks  about  radio,  Pete  Sipple  M0PSX  thought  it  would  be  good  to  support  Tim  and  put  on  a  small  station  to  demonstrate  ham  radio  to  any  interested  people  from  Tims  audience.  The  weather  wasn’t  ideal,  light  rain  most  of  the  time,  but  we  were  welcomed  by  the  heritage  centre  staff  and  even  offered  use  of  their  permanent  marquee.  

We  operated  only  on  2  metres,  and  managed  a  few  qso’s.We  were  met  there  by  Pete  Sipple  M0PSX,  Peter  Onion  G0ZDB,  Charlie  M0PZT,  Dorothy  M0LMR,  and  Richard  G7OED.
