75th Anniversary of VE Day, 8th May 2020
 

Many long laid plans for celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the end of 6 years of conflict in Europe were scuppered by the imposition of lockdown caused by the Covid-19 virus epidemic. VMARS  Public Relations Officer Stuart McKinnon, G0TBI, has been representing the Royal Air Force Amateur Radio Society from home, making many contacts with the special event callsign GB75VED.

A small portable typewriter is ready for writing up message reports.The R109 looks like it's tuned to the VMARS working frequency of 3615kc/s. Very nice.
