This exercise is to provide communications support to the Long Distance Walking Association’s 2015 Winter Poppyline challenge walk. This is a 50 mile walk with a time limit of 22 hours.
The walk will start at 0800 on Saturday from Aylsham School, and finish at 0600 on Sunday again at Aylsham School.
There will be 5 Check Points (CP) at locations where the walking route coincides with public road access, the majority of the route is on track/path.
The first CP will be manned by marshals at 0900, and communications will start from this point. The other CPs will be manned in sequence, but with increasing amounts of time overlap. The operating frequency is expected to be 144.650MHz.
Contact Mike G8EEY or Stuart M0JKB for details
ACCESS TO AYLSHAM HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE WINTER POPPYLINE There is currently no access to the event centre (Aylsham High School, NR11 6AN) using the Burgh Road turn from the A140 due to road works. If you are travelling from a southerly direction (e.g. Norwich), continue up the A140, take the next left (Banningham Rd) and, after about a mile, turn left into Sir William’s Lane to approach the school from the west. Coming from the north, turn right into Banningham Rd and proceed as above. There are temporary traffic lights on the A140 at the Burgh Road turn so please allow extra time for your journey.
