Anyone after a house with a sea view? Room for aerials?

HeHe, the Hull and District ARS should buy it as their new clubrooms!

They’re always up for a challenge!

I’ll bet it’s an exciting place on a stormy day! Reminds me of the St. George Reef Lighthouse
in Northern California. A couple of good things, no TVI complaints, no nosey neighbors, no antenna restrictions, no AC powerline noise, etc.!

JO03? Why would you buy an offshore shack when it’s not even an MWS?

At least an IOTA ! And bring along some solar panels (might need a fishing pole, too!)

Don’t we all have a fishing pole in our SOTA rucksack?

Paul, you could make it a DX entity. Just declare yourself King, issue stamps and apply for UN membership.

The guano and the truck tires should bring a few GBP, sufficient to pay the mortgage for about 90 seconds.

Great spot to put up a full sized top-band vertical with the salt water earthing system!

Sorry Ed, listed building - so you might not get planning permission for your top band vertical…

I wonder what antenna systems were on there during WWII … A top band vertical as a restoration action to how the fort was during its earlier days?

Actually - Humber Fortress DX Amateur Radio Club has to be the most likely customer from the ham radio community! They activate Spurn point lighthouse in ILLW each year.

  • we can only dream …

Actually the Real estate agent - should be advertising here
