More ash disruption – hams stranded

British and European hams who are in the US to visit the Dayton Hamfest may find it a bit tricky to get back next week. Changing weather conditions are likely to cause ash clouds from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano to return to the UK. The Department of Transport is predicting that UK airspace – including the busiest airports in the south east of the country – may be closed from Sunday until Tuesday. Travellers are advised to check with their airlines before setting off for the airport.
