NCI Watches: July – Dec 2020
This is a summary record of my NCI watch keeping periods and other NCI activities during July to December 2020 kept for my own records. On 18th March all NCI Stations were closed due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak. From 1st June NCI Calshot Tower reopened on a single manned basis, with a “Buddy” in UHF contact outside the station, with watches from 10 to 13 and from 13 to 16. Stone Point reopened for similar hours but for Friday to Monday inclusive. However often afternoons were not manned at Stone Point, one problem being access due to people flocking to the coast creating long queues of cars waiting to enter the already full car parks.
