Tonight at Shag Valley

Shag Valley Station 18th October 2014


Tonight at Shag Valley the ionosphere was good to us and we managed to contact Mill Hill School station 2SZ on 80m CW to replicate Frank Bells contact of 90 years ago. We also had good copy of 2SZ on 20m SSB and Great Grandson Henry Bell, and Great Granddaughter Lucy Bell were able to talk to current students at Mill Hill School. When they were congratulated of the fantastic achievement of their Great Grandfather and Cecil Godyer all those years ago it almost brought tears to the eyes of the crowd gathered in the shearers quarters watching and listening. It felt like the highlight of the week. Thank you Henry and Lucy.
