Portacabin Antennas (Planned)

The portacabin is powered by a petrol Generator which also chargers batteries via. a AC/DC UPS which can be used for lighting.

The portacablin is used for RCF examinations, storage and small workshop with work bench.

We have an adjustable aerial tower which we plan to repair, give a coat paint and get ready for some action.

The following antennas are planned:-

  • HF Mini Beam
  • 6 metre VHF YAGI beam
  • 4 metre VHF YAGI beam
  • 2m & 70cm dual band VHF/UHF beam antenna.
  • The Tower at SARC with our HF Beam and Tilt Plate fitted this is now replaced with a Urban beam from Step IR 6/40
