The Museum Of Harlow and the Harlow And District Amateur Radio Society came together on Saturday 15th June, 2002 to take part in the International Museums Weekend.  We had hoped to make contact with museums around the world and arranged a scheduled contact with the Museum of Zivotice Tragedy in our twin town of Havirov, Czech Republic.  Alas propagation was not all that was wished for and instead of crowded bands, we suffered severe fading for most of the day.  But an enjoyable day was had by all and the England team won some football match somewhere.

Alan (M3TEC), Chris (M5IMI) and David Devine the Museum Archivist pose for the local press

Barry (G8YNL) operates our primary HF station.  Problems with the rotator control cable kept the tower beaming west for much of the day!

On the left, Lorna (M3LRW) talks shop with Museum Archivist David Devine.  Meanwhile the operators search in vain for OK2KHF, the club station of our twin town of Havirov operating from the Museum of Zivotice Tragedy.

Spot the VHF vertical and the tower in the background.  The marquee and bunting were kindly provided by The Museum Of Harlow.
