Direction finding

Lots of consulting of maps and pointing of beam antennas.




  • At our "secret site" on the banks of the river Thames we attempt to contact other clubs that are operating either in - or close by to a registered lighthouse.

  • It is not a contest, just a day of fun which starts with a traditional English breakfast at the local cafe.
