M6XJP walks walks across Morecambe Bay for the RNLI

The RNLI Cross Bay Walk, also known as the Morecambe Bay Walk, took place on the 25th June.

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society established a special event station at Holker Hall, the finishing point for the walk, under the callsign GB5RNLI. However, we also, rather fiendishly, thought it would be a good idea to send Chris (M6XJP), our Treasurer, on the walk as our roving reporter.

GB5RNLI and GB6RNLI for Morecambe Bay Walk

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society have reserved the callsigns GB5RNLI and GB6RNLI for use by our RNLI Morecambe Bay Walk special event stations on the 25th June.

GB5RNLI will be operated from Holker Hall, whilst GB6RNLI will be used by our special event station at Arnside.

It is likely that the Arnside special event station, the starting point for the walk, will be operated from the car of Bob Hughes-Burton (MW0RHD).

The walk ends at Holker Hall and we will be operating a special event station from the car park to make visitors to the gardens and tea rooms aware of the event.

If you can help at either venue, please let us know as soon as possible.

The Morecambe Bay Walk, or Cross Bay Walk to give it it’s official title, is being organised by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and further details can be found on the RNLI web site.
