Mills on the Air contacts & first 6m QSOs

Had some "Mills on the Air" contacts today after I heard a small item on the regional radio here. Unfortenately the bands were all almost closed. Nothing could be heard on 20m. On 40m a few stations only.

GB2DWM Steve from Duloe Mill (well actually only the building). Eaton Socon, Cambridgeshire, England.

GB3LMW Rich from watermill Llanyrafon Mill, Cwmbrân, Torfaen, Wales

GB0SBM Martin from Slatford Brassmill, Slatford, England

Unfortenately not any station from a Dutch mill was heard. I will have to try again tomorrow. After the last QSO on 40m I went to tune over 20 and 17m. I heard someone talking on 17m that 6m was open today and then switched to 50MHz to find a opening to Italy and Spain. First QSO this year and season with EA7JUR John and second with IT9CFP Guiseppe.


  1. Toch mooie verbindingen Bas, mits de band open is. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ

    1. Vergeleken met voorgaande jaren is HF vrij slecht. Maar dat was natuurlijk te verwachten...73, Bas
