Sutton & Cheam are once again planning to take part in the SSB Field Day contest over the weekend of 7th/8th September from a field within Redhill Aerodrome.
The HF SSB contest itself runs from 2.00pm Saturday to 2.00pm Sunday (BST) on the 80, 40, 20, 15 & 10m bands. Contest regulars are welcome but also contest newcomers and general helpers. In addition to operating there is also the small business of constructing the station before the contest, this is planned to start at 9.30am on Saturday and dismantling it afterwards.
In order to comply with the RSGB child protection policy, under 18s will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The contest rules can be found here.
We ask all people attending to read and digest our “Field based amateur radio station” risk assessment that can be found here.
If you wish to take part, please contact Chris Howard, M0TCH at firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up through our Facebook group.
Please note that cars should be left in the car park, unless unloading heavy items, and that no alcohol is permitted on site.
The address for the site is :-
