GB1JSS June Summer Solstice

GB1JSS June Summer SolsticeThe idea behind this event is simply an excuse to operate “portable” on the longest day of the year, the June Summer Solstice.  We are fortunate to have a prime operating location just south of Chelmsford at Galleywood Common (this page lists QTH info, facilities etc) which also plays host to our casual /P get-togethers.

Supported by Essex Ham, this event has taken place every year since 2014 and attracts several enthusiastic locals who wish to play radio and enjoy a social gathering.

Operations typically start from 6am on the lower HF bands (80m+40m) with higher bands, including 2m through the day.  CW, FM, SSB and Digimodes feature as conditions/operators change.
