GB5RNLI & GB6RNLI to promote the RNLI

On the 25th June, 2011, GB5RNLI will be operational from Holker Hall to promote the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s (RNLI) Morecambe Bay Walk. Holker Hall marks the end of the walk.

Also on the 25th, GB6RNLI, will be operating from a car on the sea front at Arnside, the starting point for the sponsored walk across Morecambe Bay.

The following day, 26th June, both station’s operators move south to Stockport for the International Model Lifeboat Rally and will be operating under the GB5RNLI callsign with grateful assistance from the Southport & District Amateur Radio Club.

Please do listen out for the three stations and work them if you can on HF/VHF on the 25th and HF on the 26th.
