Geoparks Communications Weekend

Ireland’s South Eastern Amateur Radio Group will, for the 10th consecutive year, take part in the Geoparks Communications weekend which takes place this year over the weekend of 3rd & 4th June to coincide with European Geoparks week.

The event is co-ordinated by Martin G3VOF of the Riviera Amateur Radio Club and awards are available for working Geopark stations including the main station GB6GEO. Although most activity is in Europe, a number of stations will be QRV from geoparks around the world.

The South Eastern Amateur Radio Group will be QRV as EI2GEO from the Copper Coast Geopark in County Waterford. As the Geopark event is not a contest, operation tends to be relaxed with ample time and an ideal location to experiment with antennas and equipment. There is also a strong social aspect to the event with barbecue and drinks on the Saturday night. Activity will be mainly on HF (SSB and CW). For more information about EI2GEO please see www.searg.ie

The South Eastern Amateur Radio Group would like to thank all the staff both past and present of the Copper Coast Geopark Centre for making this excellent site available for us to use for the Geopark Weekend over the past 10 years
