Mills on the Air  Elstead Mill 10 to 11 May 2014

The FDRS had a successful week-end running from Elstead Mill in the "Mills on the Air" program.  Although the week-end had mixed weather we braved the rain and WIND and got on with the event. We spoke to 312 stations of which 23 were known mills. Of the 312 contacts, 30 were CW the rest were SSB, all on 40 meters band. 

We even had a OO7 call in!!! We had a number of NEW operators this year, some for the first time operating from a special event station. 

Brian G4OQZ (GB2EM Manager) gave a big thanks to all helping in the event, and to Ann M0LKY and Bob M0RCK for their nibbles.

GB2EM is registered on eQSL.cc and also the bureau. Our QSL Manager will respond to incoming QSL's and eQSL.

Thanks to all those who took part and those who organised the event so efficiently.
Our special thanks also goes to The Mill Elstead
