The Royal Deeside Railway

Railways on the Air

GB2RDR Operated over the weekend 24th and 25th of September 2016

The Royal Deeside Railway is located at Milton of Crathes, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, AB31 5QH

We had a very successful weekend operation with the backdrop of the SALMON steam engine at the edge of the grounds of Crathes Castle on the banks of Royal Deeside

With a simple dipole  and the Society’s TS 590, we managed a leisurely 143 contacts and coped with bus loads of visitors which made QSO’s “interesting”

Other sources of QRM from the engine steam whistle were greatly appreciated by distant stations.

The percentage of e-QSL’s for special events keeps increasing year on year and we have 21% confirmed for GB2RDR
