GB4LBC Special Event Station

It been a real pleasure to be operating the GB4LBC special event station for SOS radio week today. With just a long wire and 100w we had our own little pile up which lasted pretty much all day.

The station will be up and running again tomorrow on 40m and hopefully will be just as popular. The Workington and district club (MX0WRC) is operating 3 of the 4 stations in Cumbria

GB1LBC – Silloth
GB2LBC – Workington
GB4LBC – St Bees
GB5LBC – Barrow in Furness

GB5LBC is operated by our friends at Furness ARS and we managed to have a quick QSO during the pile up
