Mills on the Air – Nutley Windmill GB2NW

West Kent ARS were invited to operate Mills-on-the-Air from Nutley Windmill on Ashdown Forest, over the weekend of the 12th/13th of May 2018.

HF operation with SSB and CW modes, was using an Icom 756 with a doublet that was mainly used on the lower bands due to propagation being poor on the higher HF bands. Operation on VHF was on FM and SSB, and used an Icom 746 with 50w to a 9 ele portable Yagi.

The stations attracted a number of on-air contacts as well as some visitors to the site, despite the appalling wet and windy weather for much of the time.
