John Moyle Contest (Updated)

Tent and radio operators huddled inside on bleak land

BDARS will again be participating in the John Moyle Field Day which this year runs over the weekend of 16-17th March 2024.

We will be supporting a six hour block from 12:00 local time to 18:00 on Saturday 16th March.

There may be support for up to for 4 HF bands, and operators will take turns operating the field equipment for up to two hours each.

The contest is run in memory of John Moyle who was the editor of the Wireless Weekly from 1947 until 1960. Serving during WW2 , he kept radio equipment working under arduous conditions .

The contest is to encourage and provide familiarisation with portable and field operation,and provide training for emergency situations.
