Worked All Britain – Follow The (Olympic) Torch Award

The Worked all Britain (WAB) group have asked the IOMARS to run a station, callsign GT4WAB on Saturday 02nd June 2012. The WAB are running an award timed to coincide with the Olympic torches tour of the British Isles.

We will be active for the whole day as GT4WAB.

It is hoped to use the HF bands dependant on propagation, and maybe some higher frequencies.

We need volunteers to help out, both operators and those willing to ‘build’ the temporary station.

We will be based in the Coastguard station  at the shipyard in Ramsey. Help is needed to set up on the Friday evening (1st June) to run the station on the Saturday as we take over from the Bolton Wireless Club operating as GX4WAB through to handing over to the Glengormley E & ARS in Belfast (GN4WAB) at midnight on Saturday.  After that we plan to operate on Mad Sunday from the same location under our own Special Event Station callsign GB2MAD

please volunteer to the secretary  Andy Morgan
