SOS Radio Week - GB2FLB

I will be on the air with the call GB2FLB on air from Flint Lifeboat station 28th and 29th January. Mike M1DAP and I along with members of Flintshire Raynet and Mold and District Amateur Radio Club will be operating from 10am Saturday 28th Jan through to the evening of Sunday 29th January 2011. We will be operating mainly HF SSB and 2m FM. Other bands as the mood takes us and modes depending who else turns up. The purpose is to raise awareness of SOS Radio Week and the work of the RNLI (Lifeboat volunteers). We are not allowed to ask for donations on the air but please give generously at your local station, donate on line or drop in and pay us a visit. The lifeboat station in Flint is opposite Flint Castle (worth a visit its self) on the banks of the River Dee.


Apologies to my regular readers for the lack of contents recently, but it is a long story. The result is that changes at work and things going on at home mean I don't have much time to devote to the blog at present.

  1. I'll keep an ear out for you Steve. We're operating 4 stations abit further up the coast from you at Barrow in Furness (GB5LBC), St Bees (GB4LBC), Workington (GB2LBC) and Silloth (GB1LBC.

    We had a 'practice' run last weekend and had quite a few contacts albeit cold and windy on 40m (7.185MHz ish) and plan to be on 4Om mainly but a few others including 2m FM. I'll have to pop up the headland to get any chance of getting you on that band I think.

    Anyway have a good weekend
