 Mills On The Air (MOTA) 2017.

This Non- Contest event takes place this year on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May. Local clubs set up stations at historic Mills around the UK/Ireland and some European Mills take part as well. Have a listen for the special call-signs during this weekend. I hope to be working CW at Elstead Mill GB2EM on Sunday 14th on the 80M and 40M bands and look forward to a call. Details of this event can be found at the link below.

73 to all
