750th Anniversary Battle of Largs Special Event Station

Postby G1PIE » Mon Sep 16, 2013 11:52 am

A Special Event Station callsign, GB1BOL will be on-air to commemorate the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland. This skirmish was fought between the Vikings and Scots on 2nd October, 1263.

The portable amateur radio station will be set up near to the Battle of Largs Pencil Monument, near to the Largs Yacht Haven and will be operated for one day only, on October 2nd, 2013.

We will be operating on 40m and 20m SSB (WX and band conditions permitting).

We'll be operating a QRP station because of weight restrictions and this should have a low visual and environmental impact.

WAB Square NS25, Maidenhead Grid Locator IO75ns.

The operators will be Ian MM0IMC (licencee) and Andrew MM6GTJ.

QSL Info:- QSL by eQSL and LoTW only!
