CARS were at Sandford Mill on Saturday and Sunday 6/7 August supporting the family Big Weekend event which included the full panoply of Marconi and other exhibits; BBC Essex; canoes, archery and trebuchet demos, and talks on Marconi by Tim Wander.
Saturday: had a Morse code theme with our CW team operating from the 2MT Writtle Hut and our interactive Morse Key Demo on the mezzanine floor
Sunday: Had a variety of hands-on and other demos including software defined radio - with BBC Essex on site too
We were operating club call GX0MWT in a relaxed manner on CW, AM (1154/5) and VHF-FM
The weather was warm and sunny and the CW theme was evident. Below are photos courtesy of John G8DET...
