GB0WM – A great success!

To help celebrate British Science Week 2017 the South Kesteven Amateur Radio Society (SKARS) operated the special event station GB0WM at the birthplace and family home of Sir Isaac Newton.

Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth near Grantham is owned and managed by the National Trust and is where Newton developed his theories on mathematics, light and optics. It is also the home of the famous apple tree which inspired his laws of gravitation and motion.

South Kesteven ARS would like to say thank you to the National Trust and the staff at Woolsthope Manor for the opportunity to operate from such a prodigious location. Thank you to the visitors who came to meet us and our members that gave up their time to visit and support us. It was a very positive and enjoyable weekend which we hope it will be a regular event in the future.
