Chapel on the Airwaves

Mark Chanter M0WMB and a team of helpers were at St Ive Methodist Chapel to set up the equipment needed for ‘Churches On The Air’ (CHOTA), an initiative run by the World Association of Christian Radio Amateurs and Listeners.

A few countries that we made contact with were Brazil, Kuwait, Turkey, Mauritania, Morocco and Saudi Arabia

With two eight-metre masts, a radio and amplifier, and two dipoles to cover a range of frequencies installed by late afternoon, Mark spent the night making contacts via Upper Side-Band (USB) all over the world.
