Message to those from the SUFFOLK RED group.
was originally intending to use Tunstall Forest or Foxhall Heath, both
are possibilities for the future, perhaps a special event for your
group? However, for August 20th I have decided to use
the area shown below to reduce the miles travelled by others
coming from Kent, hoping that it will still be in reach of those
who expressed an interest at the last Suffolk Red event.
- have managed to borrow more sets, so we should have enough for
everyone but if you have a receiver which covers 1900 ....
1960 KHz bring it
along. With 10 Txs bleeping
all around us for 2 1/2 hours this will be a good chance to
let me know if you are likely to come ASAP, so I can plan the
event to best fit the situation - all the Txs & Triffids are
If you can stay for the pub session that would be great but I will need to reserve tables at least a week in advance.
Bobbits Lane car park will hold about a dozen cars, there are other
parking spots at the beginning of Bobbits Lane and on the road across
Bourne Park but if you want to drive to the centre of it all, sharing a
car and arriving early will help.
map below shows the whole area so you can navigate to Bobbits Lane, it
is shown as a footpath, see the orange marks added which lead to the
arrow marking the car park and start.
All transmitters will be within 1 Km of the start, none will be outside the orange box.
There are lots of paths and bridges not shown, if anyone finds a good map let me know and I will make it available to others.
I have 'inhaled' near the 'Wks' and it was fine, the power lines are bound to increase the 'fun' though!
The pub is located just off NW corner of the map - see link to pub-map at top of page.
Old hands need to read this, particularly the section about retrieving
Txs at the end of the event.
