Winding Wheel

Former Colliery Sites on the Air – Evening a great success

Former Colliery Sites on the Air – Evening a great success says the event organiser Paul M0PJA. Many of the club Winding Wheelmembers when out and activated a number of Former Colliery Sites in both South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Others work these sites from Home, out Mobile and from the Clubs Building in West Street, Worksop.

Paul is collecting the logsheets and the winners will be announced very soon, the dead line for submitting logs seven days.

There are two categories Site Activators and Chasers, points for activators are based on the number of stations worked. Points for Chasers are based only on the number of Colliery sites worked.

We also received some excellent feed back from other Radio Amateurs we worked, many suggesting we made this a twice yearly event.

Paul is very keen to get as much feed back good or bad about this event, please used the contact us option on this web site to give the feed back. This will be used to make the event even better next time.
