This Week in Amateur Radio

North America's Premiere Amateur Radio News Magazine

via the RSGB: National Radio Centre Coronation celebrations

Over the Coronation weekend, the RSGB National Radio Centre (NRC) at Bletchley Park ran a special event station, call sign GB2DAY.

Running SSB on the 40m band, to give maximum opportunity for everyone to make a contact, over 500 stations were worked. There was a continuous pile-up of stations calling in from around the UK, as well as France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, all looking to make a QSO.

Steve, G1YBD, Ken, G7FTD and Chris, G7BED worked hard to take the QSOs, manage the logging, provide explanations to visitors, as well as enabling some to pass greetings messages in celebration of the Coronation.
