Portable Locations

Several members enjoy setting up portable stations and have regularly used certain 'preferred' locations. This might be for testing experimental antennas or just spending the day playing radio in the countryside away from electrical noise. If such a station is being organised it will be listed on our events page (or shown in the homepage 'news box'). Visitors are most welcome at these activities.   



Clashindarroch Forest - referred to locally as just 'Clash', this site is good for HF experiments as there is plenty of space for wire antennas in and around the car park. It is not the best VHF/UHF site in the area though. It is located on the A941 about five miles out of Rhynie heading towards Dufftown. The nearest postcode is AB54 4HP. If you have the 'What Three Words' app on your smartphone then the location can be found from booms, embarks, moon.

Directions coming from Aberdeen: Take the A944 to Alford, follow the signposts for Huntly and further on join the A97. After passing through Lumsden you will reach Rhynie. Turn onto the A941 for Dufftown and reach Clashindarroch after five miles.
