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).

Special Event Station GB4OBB, May 2022

RAF Waddington Amateur Radio Club ran a Special Event Station, using the callsign GB4OBB, at Newark Air Museum during the museum’s Falklands 40th and Cold War Call-up event, taking place on Saturday, 30th April and Sunday, 1st May. This two-day event coincided with the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the successful Black Buck 1 Vulcan bombing raid on the runway at Port Stanley Airport in the Falkland Islands - you can read more about the operation at Vulcan to the Sky Trust.
