Museum of Power - 2015

Science Sunday
Sun 22-Mar-2015, 10am-5pm
Museum of Power

Coordinated by James 2E1GUA, CARS operated GX0MWT at the Museum of Power at Langford near Maldon for Science Sunday, 22nd March. This was part of a very busy activity period over Science Week. The museum was originally a pumping house and has a varied collection of classical steam engine pumps and other exhibits.

The 'Marshall' triple expansion pump is one of the many exhibits

Operation on HF was mainly 40m and included CW+SSB, whilst VHF operation enabled local amateurs to participate. David G3SVI and Myra M0MYR ran the 'meet and greet', whilst Colin G0TRM did morse code explanations.

At the end of a long day, James retrieved the W3DZZ antenna, which he and Tony G4YTG had installed the day before.
