It is with sadness we have to announce that Alan Mills G1CAQ is now a silent key.
He was chairman of the club for a number of years and an active member/supporter of club activities for many years, and a member for the last 20+years.
His support will be missed and our sympathies are extended to his family.
On saturday the 3rd of August we held a special event station to celebrate Yorkshire day , it gave us the ideal chance to test our latest mast and HW40 antenna system.
