This may work very well for me if I can organise it - we are booked to go to a campsite in JO02PU next week but were planning to leave on Friday
However, I have just extended the stay so we will be there until 5pm UK or 4pm UTC on Saturday afternoon I now need to work out how to get all the ATV gear in the car as well as the family holiday gear!
The plan is that I would be active on 50MHz and 144 / 146 MHz for the first 4 hours of the contest - it would be good to line up some contacts so time is not wasted. Talkback would mobile phone / Zello and maybe 144.750 horizontal.
I will confirm before Monday what I have managed to hide in the car
