ECWARC are pleased to announce that we have once again formed a team for NFD (the RSGB National Field Day event), which takes place on June 3rd/4th this year.  It starts at 1500 GMT (4 pm local time) Saturday June 3rd and concludes 24 hours later on the Sunday afternoon.

The QTH is the same as for the last few years:

Back Road,


CM9 8TP.

Grid:  94081107.

Entrance is through the gate opposite Old Hall Lane.

The site will be continuously manned by the ECWARC Committee. 

All ECWARC and other CW operators are invited to participate.  You can stop by to operate for a spell, or just to say hello and share a coffee.

For those stopping longer, we will have a BBQ available. Please bring your own food.

NFD is always a fun event whether operating or not.  And it provides a great opportunity to see CW contesting in action and even try your hand.  We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
