I'm running the Special event call GB0VUL (for the last flying Vulcan Bomber) this week, (the call is active all month but I'm doing this week) and If I can get my 6m 2 ele delta loop on the hosts rotator/tower this evening, I should be active on 6m (and other bands) every evening this week, from Newbury in Berkshire (IO91IJ).

Not sure how far i will get on 6m Currently but this the antenna I used last year to listen to the Buxton Beacon and beyond.

I look forward to trying to work as many of you as I can.

for more details of GB0VUL.

and for last years video of The Buxton Beacon from coombe last year.

The delta loop is up and working well, so I'll be on 6m from appx 18:00 tomorrow (16th Mar) I'll stay on till at least sunset so if you fancy trying to work me have a look for me.

Hope to work a few 6m contacts before I head down the bands.
