Over the past week or so, Best Beloved and I have been paying visits to his amateur radio club’s annual field trip. They haven’t gone far, just to the other side of Sittingbourne at a large, well-equipped Scout campsite. Several members have set up camp and stayed the whole fortnight, while others can only make it for weekends.
Essentially, though, it’s all about amateur radio, with numerous masts and antennae set up around the field, and almost every tent noisy with the sounds of transmitting and receiving signals of all kinds around the planet.
Not being terribly interested in the radio side, I left BB chatting technicalities and wandered about with the camera. I had no idea what I wanted to photograph, so having documented the various masts and so on, I got down a bit closer, to the details and odd little things that caught my eye.
This is one image, part of a set of 16, that have been added to my Flickr “Stuff” stream.
