GB1BST - Special Event Radio Station at YHA Woody's Top

GB1BST - Special Event Radio Station at YHA Woody's Top

On the 27th to 29th March, YHA Woody's Top in Lincolnshire will be the venue for the 2015 GB1BST Special Event Station, celebrating the start of British Summer Time!

Situated on the Greenwich Meridian between Louth and Horncastle (WAB TF37), YHA Woody's Top is a rather remote and quiet location in the southern part of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Radio operations are scheduled to start late on 27th March with test transmissions on the 40m, 20m, 17m and 2m bands which will be used during the weekend event.

GB1BST has been organised by the Youth Hostels Amateur Radio Group (YHARG) and the Phoenix Radio Group, with help from several clubs in the region. Local radio hams are invited to visit the station, and to help run it over the weekend! Overnight accommodation may be available to bona fide volunteers, courtesy of the YHA (England & Wales).

Supporting the GB1BST event, the YHARG club callsign MX0YHA will be used by Kevin M0XLT between 15th and 30th March at Gargrave near Skipton, which is approximately 6 miles from the YHA Malham and YHA Earby in the Yorkshire Dales.

Further information about GB1BST and the YHARG is available at www.YHARG.org.uk, or from the YHAG Secretary (Alan, G7HZZ) at M0YHA@Outlook.com. You can follow them on Twitter here!
