Special Events News – 6 April 2014

| April 4, 2014

Riviera ARC is planning a station for Airfields on the Air on 6 April from the site of Little Haldon, outside Teignmouth, Devon. Look out for the station on the HF bands from 10 to 40m as well as 2m.

Dengie Hundred Amateur Radio Society will be active for Airfields on the Air on 6 April from Stow Maries Aerodrome in Essex, using the callsign GB0SMA.

GB6RAF will be on the air from Rednal Airfield near Oswestry on 6 April, operated by RAF Air Cadets. The main band will be 7MHz, with other stations on 14 and 21MHz as time allows. Many Cadets on the air will be new to amateur radio and it is hoped that this event will spark interest in the hobby.

Bletchley Park was the central site of the UK Government Code and Cypher School that, during the Second World War, broke the German Enigma and Lorenz ciphers. A special event station will be on the air on 12 April to commemorate the first real-time breaking of Enigma messages. N7E will be using as many bands as possible and has skeds with GB3RS, the National Radio Centre station at Bletchley Park.
