Special Event Station GB0NAM, June 2022

We were back at the Newark Air Museum during the weekend of 25-26th June, 2022, for the museums’ Cockpit Fest.

Operating using the Special Event callsign GB0NAM, we were able to make a number of interesting contacts, including a contact with the Croatian amateur radio station, callsign 9A22YOTA, which was being operated remotely from the Friedrichshafen Hamfest as part of the 2022 Youngsters on the Air(YOTA) summer camp (hosted this year by the Croatian Amateur Radio Association in the city of Karlovac, near Zagreb).

Members of the public also visited the station, some licensed, but others wanting to find out about amateur radio. We were especially pleased to welcome a number of Air Cadets to the station.
