Following the successful centenary event on 14th February, CARS will return to Writtle for their 2MT Anniversary Weekend on Saturday 21st May. Writtle have a variety of events.

We plan to have both HF and VHF stations on air along with other demonstrations in the rear room of Writtle Village Hall (same place as February) Operators and volunteers should contact Paul G4PVM.

New Special Event Callsign GB9MT will be in use (9 being in the spirit of Experimental Transmissions).

Like February, thus is an excellent opportunity to meet and socialise.
