Amateur radio to be shown on television

| June 1, 2022

The hobby of amateur radio, and portable operating in particular, will receive some television coverage on Sunday, 5 June 2022.

The long-running BBC Countryfile programme airs at 6pm on BBC 1, and features Flat Holm island in the Bristol Channel; the site of Marconi’s first radio transmissions over sea.

Presenters Ellie Harrison and Matt Baker will be with leading Summits on the Air (SOTA) operator Ben Lloyd, GW4BML as he sets up a portable station on the island in order to contact SOTA activators on hill and mountain summits around the UK.
