Hilderstone AR & EC took part in the Museums on the Air event by setting up an HF station at the Manston Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum.

It was a very windy day causing the antenna to come down at one point but the major problem was with wind noise! The photo shows Patrick Kirkden M0ZPK making contacts around the country. The event generated much interest with visitors as well as with passing amateur radio enthusiasts – one from Holland and another an engineer from Bristol, working on the Vulcan bomber for the Thanet Air Show.
