October 2024 Shag Valley Station trans-ocean 100th Centenary celebrations

Over the last few days, after lots of negotiating, we have got access pretty much sorted for Shag Valley Station, the historic shearing shed this time. Mill Hill Station in London are now also coming on board again so we are now able to say that the big event at 0630 UTC on the the 18th October (Friday in NZ) will go ahead. The Shag Valley Station committee are now full steam ahead in getting down to the nitty gritty of how it will all run. The Branch has secured ZL100DX/ZM100DX for the duration - more info on how that will operate in due course. We expect to run similar frequencies and bands as last time in the days leading up to the event as well as other DX work in the weeks prior.

More information as the planning progresses

Website Changes Ahoy

Work is underway to create a new site powered by a more friendly CMS. In this case we're using DokuWiki.

The aim is to make it easier to update website content and to simplify ongoing updates to web software.

Content is being migrated from the current website to this one. At the same time some menu changes and text layout are being applied.
