BBC DG to open G8BBC shack

| October 13, 2017

On Wednesday, 18 October 2017 BBC Director General Tony Hall will cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the new G8BBC radio shack at Broadcasting House, London.

The station, home of the recently formed London BBC Radio Group, will move on from test transmissions to full operation following a watch period of a few months during which the Master Control Room at BH were checking for any interference issues.

It is hoped that the Director General will be able to pass a greetings message over the air to GB3RS at the RSGB’s National Radio Centre in Bletchley Park, or GB2RN on HMS Belfast, depending on propagation conditions on the day.

G8BBC will be active on HF bands and VHF, and hopes to expand operations further in the near future.
