26th August 2019. On Saturday, August 24, and Sunday, August 25, NCI Exmouth hosted their annual amateur radio event
NCI Exmouth watchkeepers and amateur radio enthusiasts Anthony Howell-Jones and Alan Campbell, set up their equipment in Coastwatch House this weekend and communicated this special amateur radio weekend across the airwaves. Using the callsign GBBNCI they were able to tell fellow amateur radio enthusiasts about the volunteer work that NCI Exmouth carries out with the Search & Rescue Services. They were able to speak to people not only in the UK, but also in Poland, Northern Ireland, Bulgaria, The Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Hungary and several other countries.
It was a very successful event and many visitors called in to learn more about amateur radio and the work of Exmouth NCI.
