The conditions were possibly the worst we have experienced at the walking festival, special thanks to everyone who travelled to help. And we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Galtee Mountain Walking Festival

Tipperary Amateur Radio Group, along with members of AREN are providing communication assistance over the Galty Walking Festival weekend, beginning tomorrow June 2nd. If you’re at a loose end over the weekend and feel you could have something to contribute, please listen out/call on our simplex frequency 145.450. TARG/AREN has been officially thanked for our participation by the walks’ organising commitee.

The event will also be the initial field trial of the GAISS project, so a very interesting weekend is in store.

If you’re coming to the walk and you have some spare radio equipment/antennas sitting there, bring it!
It’s better to be looking at it, than looking for it!

Hope to see you all there – Registration at “The Foot” bar at 9am, but we’ll be setting up radios etc some time before that – tune to 145.450, this will be monitored.
