Armed Forces Day

Leedstown — 29 June 2019

Armed Forces Day On The Air

8:30 am to 5:00 pm

My name is James and I am the Vice Chairman and Public Relations Officer for the Cornish Amateur Radio Club…and for the past two years we have put on an Amateur Radio Event in support of Armed Forces Day…this being the first year of registration. The event entails making radio contacts using our club equipment to possibly other clubs supporting Armed Forces Day… or individual amateurs who also wish to join in the spirit of the day.
We would normally apply for a special call sign to be used on the day or just use our own club call sign GX4CRC. The day begins with a small group of us normally from the committee…assembling at the venue to set up our equipment and commence operating…and as the day progresses other members of the club arrive to take part…do a little radio operation…cup of tea etc…basically have a good time supporting such a worthwhile cause.
