The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society attended the Fog on the Tyne Amateur Radio Rally in Gateshead on the 18th September and was made most welcome by the local Amateur Radio community.
Organised by the Angel of the North Amateur Radio Club, in association with the South Tyneside Amateur Radio Society, this was a new event and very well organised it proived to be. Despite being a small rally the atmosphere was great, there were several regular traders at the event including LAM Communications and the Snowdonia Radio Company.
This was a pre-lauch visit for us, the main launch taking place at the National Hamfest in Newark on the 1st/2nd October. We enjoyed several good conversations with visitors and met several local lifeboat crew. Pictured is Gerrad (M3XYP) who is a member of the Sunderland Lifeboat Station who will be taking up a position on the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society’s committee.
This was a great rally and we would like to thank the organisers for their hospitality.
