Between 10am and 4pm St Cynllo’s Church COED Y BRYN, will be taking part in the annual Churches and Chapels on the Air (CHOTA) event whereby Amateur Radio Clubs all over the UK set up short wave radio stations on a chosen day in September at specially chosen Church locations and broadcast to other operators as a way of letting people all over the UK ,and Internationally too, know about these beautiful sacred sites.
The church will be open for the day, and refreshments will be available.
This event is also a perfect opportunity for anyone interested in amateur radio as a hobby to come along and see how it works in action . We will be using the radio call sign GB2SCC and hoping to make lots of contacts on the HF radio bands
WACRAL was originally founded by the Rev Arthur W Shepherd, G3NGF in 1957 as the Huddersfield South Methodist Radio Club, G3LQK, and it became an international organisation in 1958. Originally known as "WAMRAC" - the World Association of Methodist Radio Clubs, it changed its name in 1978 to reflect the ecumenical nature of its membership, and became WACRAL - the World Association of Christian Radio Amateurs and Listeners.
