The Hobbit Inn, Norland, near Halifax – May 2010

Field behind The Hobbit Inn, Norland, near Halifax

Norland is an upland area to the south-west of Halifax and has been inhabited since pre-historic times. The picture below is of Ladstone Rock. The place names in this part of the West Riding are typically Norse on the hilltops and Celtic in some of the western valleys. Lad in norse means pile or heap which makes some sense.

We helped Tony to raise a new delta loop aerial and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

These two gentlemen were engineers who have been at the height of technological endeavour in electronics and radio.

I am incredibly grateful to them both for their guidance in my construction projects.

During the afternoon, a number of distant european stations were worked.

A number of locals dropped in – Des G3JWN (SK) (centre), David G6OCD & Michael G1XCC. One enterprising youngster asked if we might be able to broadcast any of his group’s material (Jimmy Hendrix, Led Zeppelin style)!
