11 – 12 May 2019, Blackmore Vale Amateur Radio Society operated a Radio Station from inside the water mill which dates back to 1016. This is part of the international event ” Mills on the Air” where amateur radio enthusiasts “CQ” as many other mills as they can over the weekend
The station and ariel were installed on Friday, the “Shack” being on the first floor of the mill whilst the ariel was strung out across the weir of the river Stour.
The kit consisted of Yaseu 450D, Tuner, and PSU together with logging software on laptop.
Over the two days members of the club took it in turns to call up other “Mills on the Air ” A total of 127 calls were made.
Below are a couple of members in action !
Plans are already afoot to look at improving reception for next years event.
It is with sadness I must announce that Robert Farey (Bob) G6LLP became a Silent Key on Sunday 28th April.
Bob was a stalwart of BVARS and was always willing to share his knowledge and experiences. He will be missed by many.
His funeral will take place at the Yeovil Crematorium on Wednesday 8th May at 2:40pm, afterwards at “The Old Barn”, Old Barn Way, Yeovil.
There will be an AGM at the club on Tuesday 9th April.

A talk on Tuesday 12th March will be given by Jim G3RTD entitled ‘Small Active Receive Antennas for the Noisey QTH’.
There was a short demonstration of this antenna at the club last year which demonstrated considerable improvements to reception. The talk is highly recommended for those who have a noisy QTH and for those who may wish to explore possible improvements at their own QTH.
Congratulations to Tim 2E0TYH, Chris 2E0FDH and Bob 2E0FEB on passing their Intermediate exams and gaining their new call signs.
