AM nets to mark D-Day landings

| May 23, 2014

On Friday June 6, to mark the 70th anniversary of the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, the Vintage and Military Amateur Radio Society are organising amplitude modulation radio nets on 80m, 60m and 40m for operators of vintage military wireless sets that would have been in use at that time. The AM nets will be open to all amateurs and joining stations are encouraged to undertake a little research beforehand, in order to provide a description of how their equipment type was used in Operation Overlord, and other information such as naming any known military, naval and air force units that operated the sets, their role in Overlord, or anecdotes about the hectic life of the operators. The schedule is 8am on 3615kHz, 12 noon on 7143kHz and 4pm 5317kHz for 5MHz NoV holders.
