The shack is available on a first-come first-served basis. Confirmed reservations will be filled first.

A rental charge of 60.00 is payable for each operation by overseas members. Full club members who wish to use the club for contest purposes shall make a donation of not less than 20.00 to the club.

A booked operation may ordinarily consist of up to seven consecutive days.

To persons not known to the club a deposit of 200.00 is required. This will be returned following an inspection to ensure the club is left in a clean and tidy condition and all equipment is connected and operational as it was prior to the operation.

Accommodation in a hotel, guesthouse or campsite MUST be booked for the duration of your stay. The clubhouse is not permitted to provide accommodation for visitors.

The GJ2A callsign may only be used by club members and is ONLY available for use during certain specified contests. It may NOT be used before or after the contest.

If you dial your own ISP (this includes all the UK "lo-call" numbers) the call charges will be presented to you for payment, a copy of the itemised bill can be made available for those who dispute the outrageously high charges that we have to bear!
