This Thursday, 18th September, we welcome Chris Darlington – M0DOL, to our club. Chris will be speaking to us about the CASHOTA (Castles And Stately Homes On The Air) award scheme and his portable operating techniques and equipment. Chris is heavily involved in the CASHOTA scheme and I am sure many of us will have spoken to him on air whilst he has been operating one of his Special Event Stations.
CASHOTA encourages operators to operate portable from many Castles and Stately Homes here in the UK and abroad, with awards available for both activating and chasing. Locally, Barbury Castle, Liddington Castle (as Hill Forts) and Lydiard Park would all be eligible for activating once permission was gained.
Chris, a Taxi Driver from Northampton, has made a phenomenal amount of world-wide contacts whilst operating /P and he is hoping to drive down in his ‘Radiomobile’ – a vehicle he has kitted out and keeps specially for his portable operations.
Please join us on Thursday 18th September at Pine Trees from 7pm to meet Chris and see what is sure to be an entertaining presentation.
