The club had an excellent weekend celebrating Mills on the Air at the White Mill in Sandwich. We set up a special event radio station, with Matt Payne holding the call sign GB2WM. The White Mill has a fascinating history and one of our radio stations was in the tiny Miller’s Cottage where the miller’s wife had given birth to fourteen children!

The venue enabled us to set up our aerials with plenty of space and a good height using the fantail of the windmill, so we hope to return there for future events. At our club training session the Intermediate Licence candidates were put through their paces thanks to Clive Widdus, Bob Fidler and John Hislop. Some of the club members journeyed to Waters & Stanton’s Open Day to receive the club trophy for the Centenary Club of the Year 2013.
