Special Events News – 14 June 2020

| June 12, 2020

Since the change of regulations applying to special event stations in the UK, many activations are now able to go ahead. UK amateurs would like to thank Ofcom for their help in making this happen.

GB100MZX will be operated by Chelmsford ARS to celebrate the landmark broadcast made by Dame Nellie Melba on 15 June 1920 and will be on air until the 20 June. MZX was the call sign of the 1920 15kW transmitter at Marconi New Street Works in Chelmsford, Essex where it happened.

The 28 June is the Centenary of the Royal Corps of Signals. The Royal Signals Museum has a permanent special event call sign, GB100RSM, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions they cannot run the station from the museum. The station will instead run from the home QTH of G3WZP in IO90BR. Activity will be until the end of June on the 40, 20 and 17m bands, using SSB and CW. Skeds are welcome.
