The Great Tommy Sleep Out 2023

This year I am taking part in the Great Tommy Sleep Out, spending a night under the stars to hopefully raise some funds to help veterans in need.

I was going to camp for one night but as I have got to my fund raising target I will stay out for two nights. Im going to be camping at a local campsite and will set up my radio and see if I can make a few contacts over the two nights assuming my radio battery lasts (lets hope for some sunshine to charge it, the campsite is off grid so I can only charge with Solar).

I will be operating on HF as the campsite is in a valley so VHF isn’t going to be an option, unless you are in Exford of course 🙂

If you would like to sponsor me you can donate at my just giving page if you would like to donate but don’t want to use that link contact me and I will happily accept your donation in another way.

I hope to talk to some of you on the radio during the camping trip, I will use SSB and JS8Call and will see if I can get winlink email going.

Dates will be confirmed in the next week or so. I hope that I can raise a little more money so any donation however small will be greatly appreciated and all finds will go to helping veterans.
