via the RSGB: Commonwealth Games station on the air

The RSGB is excited to be supporting the Commonwealth Games with special event station GB22HQ.
This is being activated from the Birmingham Smithfield site where the Beach Volleyball, 3×3 Basketball and Wheelchair Basketball will take place. It is also the starting point for the Marathon. GB22HQ will run for the duration of the Games until the 8 August.
There are two stations using wire aerials for 40m and 30m, plus a Yagi for the five bands from 20m to 10m. During the first day of operation, the station was on the 10 to 40m bands and pile ups were evident. The operators say 40m SSB during the daytime is probably the best place to look for them.
