Waterfordmateur Radio Group, based in Waterford, Ireland are for the 10th consecutive year QRV from the same location at the Old Copper Mine at Tankardstown (near Bonmahon) on the Copper Coast Geopark over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd of June 2017. Loc: IO62hd

The annual Geopark communications weekend is co-ordinated from GB6GEO at Kents Cavern in Torquay, in the heart of the English Riviera Global Geopark.

The Copper Coast European Geopark is located on the South East coast of Ireland. It extends from Fenor in the east to Stradbally in the west and as far north as Dunhill.

The Copper Coast gets its name from the 19th Century copper mines that were once predominant in the area.

The Copper Coast consists of 25 kilometres of spectacular coastline. Oceans, volcanoes, deserts and ice sheets all combined to create the rocks, which provide the physical foundation of the natural and cultural landscapes of the Copper Coast.

The Copper Coast is an outdoor geology museum with geological heritage that reflects a variety of environments under which the area has evolved over the last 460 million years. Sedimentary and volcanic rocks illustrate the closure of the Iapetus Ocean, the resulting volcanic activity, evidence of the collision of two continents leading to the creation of Ireland and finally the effects of glaciation from the Ice Age. Cross-sections of these are exposed on the many spectacular cliffs along the Co. Waterford coastline.

Activity is mainly on HF and updates are available on Twitter and www.searg.ie
