Geopark 2014 - EI2GEO

We will for the 7th consecutive year take part in the Geoparks Communications weekend which takes place over the weekend of 24th & 25th May to coincide with European Geoparks week. The event is co-ordinated by Martin G3VOF of the Riviera Amateur Radio Club and awards are available for working Geopark stations including the main station GB6GEO. Although most activity is in Europe, a number of stations will be QRV from geoparks around the world.

SEARG will be QRV as EI2GEO from the Copper Coast Geopark in Co. Waterford. As the Geopark event is not a contest, operation tends to be relaxed with ample time and an ideal location to experiment with antennas. There is also a strong social aspect to the event with barbecue and drinks on the Saturday night. Activity will be mainly on HF (SSB and CW). SEARG would like to thank Paula McCarthy manager of Copper Coast Geopark Centre for making this excellent site available to us over the past number of years.
