CQWW SSB 2001 with East Cork Group EI7M

Bristol and East Cork Contest Groups joined forces for CQWW SSB 2001. And what a combination it was! The previous Irish record, which had stood for many years, was beaten.

At that time the East Cork Group had use of the old Fog Station at Poer Head. This cliff-top site has a spectacular view over the sea.

The Bristol contingent travelled over by Ferry towing one of their mobile towers. The Fog Station had electricity, but the station had to be set up from scratch. Antennas were built and installed on towers or fixed to poles that were on the site. Have a look at the pictures below to see how this was done.
