Local Amateurs in Lockdown
During Lockdown some local ham have now once again turned to the radio, after repainting the house or doing the gardening.
Many of us Amateur Radio fans have been so lucky not only having family and close friend to talk too in these unsettled times, but we have access to the world wide airways as well, if your a high risk person living on your own as I know a few, this has been a life line for many and i know a lot can relate to this.
we have seen Covid 19 nets pop up on HF, VHF, UHF, DMR, and all modes, all sharing a common goal and getting people to talk and meet new hams alone the way, I know in my town Kingston Upon Hull there are quite a few local ham building antennas and repairing and trying new thing out and having fun.
I have been talking to a few and watching over the last few months what they have been doing, I have ask a few to take photos and do a little write up of what they have been up to.
First to reply Was Nick G0VQO on his 40m / 80m traps he repaired enjoy the write up Nick kindly sent in, we will have more to follow i am sure.
