Southend Air Show 2009

Our sister ATC Sqn, 444 (Shoreditch), will be helping at the Southend Air Show again this year, on Sunday 24 May and Monday 25 May. They’ve asked me to ask you to give them a call on the radio if you’re flying in the area on either day:

Air Cadet HF Radio Again this year the Air Cadets will be helping at the Southend Air Show. As well as helping with organising and running the Show there will be a demonstration Radio Station on Air. The station will be using very basic equipment, but if conditions are good it is hoped to make many contacts. They will be on air during day time 1000Z to 1600Z on both Sunday 24 and Monday 25 May 2009. If you have an opportunity during your flight to contact the Air Cadets on your HF radio suggested information to send is set out below: 5,420 Khz 11,184 Khz 13,218 Khz These frequencies have been specially assigned for use at the Southend Air Show. We are hoping for better weather this year. We hope you can call MRV 50 sometime. Our Callsign: MRV 50 Transmission times: 1000 to 1600 hours Zulu Your Callsign: Signal Report (Radio Check): Aircraft Type: Aircraft Registration: Aircraft location/position: Departure Airport: Destination Airport: Flight Level: Airspeed: ETA: Additional Information you may wish to add: If conditions are difficult you may wish to send only a selection of the above. Please remember that Air Cadets will be operating and it may be their first time on HF please be patient with them. After they have taken the information they may send a short message to you. Other Air Cadet Stations may be on the air and if you can not contact us and they are listening, you can pass the information through them. Air Cadet Call signs all start MR. Many thanks for your call let us try and beat the number of contacts last year.

Please help if you can!
