British Inland Waterways on the air

There has been considerable interest in the Waterways on the air Weekend and a number of radio amateurs are considering setting up their stations to publicise the event. The event will be held on the weekend of the Inland Waterways Festival on 30 and 31 July with amateurs attempting to activate as many of the Inland Waterways as possible. Many different types of station are proposed including special event stations at locations associated with historic water transport, boats, towpaths, lakes, reservoirs, rivers, lochs and docks.

Further details of plans will be posted on the website at
