NFD at Ashworth Valley

This was from 1970 (I think) of NFD at Ashworth Valley with the Bury Radio Club.
If you click the image you can see some classic cars including the one at the front which belonged to G3RSM with his topband mobile whip antenna. At the time I did not have a licence, so I filled in the log while George G3ZQS worked the stations with his broken hacksaw blade on Cw on the HF bands.
The antenna was a trapped 80m dipole and two 50ft masts.
Gosh...them were the days!
