A hurriedly organised event at a Wednesday club night saw members meeting at the bunker for a field day on the 15 March 2014. We arrived early morning, with Spencer M0STO arriving at 7:30am. Other members arrived about 9am. We erected a small day-tent, the SCAM12 mast, and a 4 element tri-bander HF beam.

Most operating was done on 10 metres FM since, and the GB0SNB callsign achieved a good pile-up with plenty of activity. Dave M0TAZ called into the club top-band net from his car (although not /M).

Steve G8PMU brought a crazy looking 4 metre antenna and some good contacts were made.
