special event station

Worksop Amateur Radio Society put on a Special Event Station and Operated a ARDF (Amateur Radio Direction Finding) challenge for people to have a go at.

At the 10th Annual Ranskill and Torworth Scarecrow Festival, it was our first time at this Scarecrow Festival and we were made very welcome.

Our Special Event call sign was GB4RSF and we operated from 11:00 to 16:00 (BST)

We held another sucessful Driection finding (ARDF)

We held another sucessful Driection finding (ARDF), we run these events from them to time, there also known as a fox hunt. In our case the ‘Fox’ is either an automatic beacon hidden or more often the case a member of the club with a hand held.

Here are I think – the winning team with the Fox!

Thanks to everyone who took part, a great time was had by all. Another event soon ?

If you saw any of us running (okay) walking around Worksop and wondered what it was – it was just a case of Radio Amateurs having Fun!
