Steve took his own Yeasu FT487 radio and connected it up and a precautionary SWR check was carried out on the new wire antenna which proved to be excellent.
It was amazing that as Steve then tuned through the bands there was no apparent noise on the bands which we have been dogged with since reopening the station after lockdown.
There was a constant stream of visitors through the radio room and Steve and David spoke to many interested visitors.
Later in the morning they had a short break and a drink and watched the Lancaster and Mosquito taxy runs.
They then returned to the radio room, Steve changed bands and worked George II3 WRTC in Veneto Italy with a 5/9 signal in both directions on 14.206 mhz.
They are intending to open the station next month the date to be announced.
