Bancroft Mill Activation - Mills On The Air
This Sunday the 17th of May we will be active alongside the rest of the CRAG Members at Bancroft Mill , Barnoldswick, Lancashire.
The Craven Radio Amateur Group will be operating from the Steam powered mill which will be running with the steam engine fully powered up.
Listen out for the CRAG call sign – MX0BCQ/A operating on most of the HF bands as well as VHF. The WAB square at the steam powered mill is SD84 which will be up for grabs during the activation. We will be on air from around 10.00 utc and the event will be all available to the general public.
Louise – M3TLL and I, will be taking some pictures in between playing radio as well as learning about steam powered mills and weaving. It should be a great day out as I used to be the Maintenance Engineer during the 80s working in a still existent local Baildon Steam Powered Mill. I will tell you more about Sundays event when it happens and hope to work some of you on the day.

    Hi Simon,

    I tried to contact your team yesterday, but my mobile antenna in the garden doesn't work fine.
    Better luck next time.

    Best regards,

    Cyril F4FUL

    Hello Simon,

    As you know i don't have antennas installed at home.
    But when i'll manage a portable work, i'll warn you.
    I'll go 2 weeks in Italy for holidays in the end of June, and i think i'll take my FT897 (+ a small psu and antenna tuner) with me. So if it will be the case, i'll give you some frequencys and time to try to catch us on the air.

    Best regards my friend.
