GB4LL ... the Wirral & District Amateur Radio Club
2010 proved to be another enjoyable year on Leasowe Lighthouse (UK0014
(ENG 063), particularly as conditions are slowly beginning to improve.
Geoff G4WUA was again our Station Manager and did a great job with the aid of his team of helpers.
We worked a total of 301 stations in 30 countries, which included 31 lighthouses and lightships.
Best DX was Saudi Arabia, followed by West Coast of the USA and Canada
A Big 'Thank You' also to Jim M0BAS for the lone of the HF rig .. the extra power (without using an amplifier) made all the difference. Running 200 watts into the full size Windom gave us a great signal as the log shows most of the reports were 59+ with excellent audio.
Thanks also to Simon G6XHF and Garry 2E0LGZ for long stints at operating including young Daniel M6CUL for looking after the 2m station for long periods
Also, thanks to Eric G6HWD who was the Public Relations anchor man on the Sunday in extolling the virtues to the visiting members of the public about Amateur Radio, as they made their way to the top of Leasowe Lighthouse via trips managed by the Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse.
And finally to Simon 2E0BDO for help with all the rigging.
