CW operators urgently needed in Wiltshire

| July 7, 2014

Over the weekend 26-27 July, the village of Codford—near Warminster in Wiltshire—will be commemorating the centenary of the start of WW1.

This event will fill the village hall and its adjacent recreation field with a rich mixture of memorabilia and other exhibits from the time, including a full-scale section of a front-line trench.

In the trench dugout will be an earth-mode telegraph station, which will communicate with a similar station on the far side of the field.

Reproduction telegraph equipment is being constructed by members of the Trowbridge and District ARC, but there is a critical shortage of CW operators to demonstrate the stations.

Any willing volunteers would be most welcome. Please contact G0GRI via the Trowbridge and District ARC website or G4ZUP who is QTHR or G3ZXX via the GB3JB repeater or its website.
