CARS Commemorate WWI in Chelmsford

The Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society (CARS) was active at two locations in Chelmsford to commemorate Britain’s entry into the first World War one hundred years ago this week.

Sandford Mill

The main activity was at the historic Sandford Mill museum where a team operated a 40m station for most of the day. Thanks to Chris G0IPU for supplying Essex Ham with the following photos of the activity at Sandford Mill.

The CARS website reports that around 250 QSOs were made using the callsign GB100MWT.

You can find more details of the event, plus some additional photos on the CARS website

Thanks to Chris G0IPU for allowing us to use his photos, and well done to the CARS team for a hard day’s work.

Oaklands Museum

A small team from CARS was also present at nearby Oaklands Museum. No stations were active, but it was a good opportunity to promote the hobby and spread the word about amateur radio.
