Hull UK City of Culture 2017

The Humber Fortress DX ARC in Hull (UK) have organised a year's multi-club activation to celebrate Hull as the UK City of Culture 2017.

Ofcom have kindly granted the call sign GB0HCC for the whole year using the standard NOV format of 28 days, each club will apply for the relevant 28 day portion of the year, to follow on from the previous club.

HFDXARC will be starting the year off, at 00:01 UTC until 08:30 UTC from the Cottingham Road Baptist Church. After the Church services have finished in the afternoon about 16:00hrs we hope to activate for a few more hours.

We are only at the CRBC site for 24hrs as the NOV is then transferred to the HFDXARC clubhouse for the remaining 27 days. I can say that the station will be active on club nights Tuesday and Friday from 19:00hrs UTC until 21:30hrs. Other times such as weekends may also happen, so watch this space.

On the 29th Jan 2017 Hull and District Amatuer Radio Society take over for the next leg of the event, activation times for them will be made clear later.
