More information can be found by clicking on each callsign, which will take you to each QRZ page. Below is an article from Jim M0MAC who was at the Upminster Windmill:
The Havering & District Amateur Radio Club in conjunction with The Friends of Upminster Windmill operated an amateur radio station at the mill to participate in the above event as usual this year.
Unfortunately the weather this year was rather unkind to us, but we persevered braving the elements to erect the various antennas and tent. The QSO’s (Radio Contacts) were also down slightly too , the figures are listed below.
High Frequency Contacts ……….48 including 16 Mills.
Very High Frequency Contacts…55 including 6 Mills.
Total number of Contacts………103 including 22 Mills.
The Contacts were all UK and European.
On behalf of the Havering Radio Club I would like to thank all the Friends of Upminster Windmill for their very kind help and assistance, in particular John Winn. Many thanks to you all. We hope top see you all again next year.
