My idea was to use old portable rigs to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the launch of SOTA on 2nd March. As the 2nd of March falls on a Wednesday this year, I thought it would be nice to include both weekends either side to dig out the old rigs and put them on air. However it’s now Sunday afternoon and I’m sat in Costa drinking Latte at Gretna Green!
So just for fun, how about using retro rigs for the coming week, finishing on Sunday 6th March?
I will be out on Saturday 5th March in the Lake District somewhere and I’ll try to use a vintage themed rig, maybe my SW-20+. If possible I hope to be out during the week sometime too, and I’ll put an old rig on the air.
My idea is that there aren’t any strict rules, its just to have fun and a nostalgic look back at how things were 20 years ago. No points or prizes - maybe just kudos if you choose to take your old lead acid batteries for an outing!
