Sun 1st & 15th September

Amateur Radio operating at the Transmitter Block

On September 1st and 15th there will be an opportunity to learn all about amateur radio. Learn how radar techniques are used for communication purposes. Watch and listen to operators talking to people, potentially all over the world. There will be a chance to have a go yourself and send a greetings message to another radio amateur – possibly just down the road or perhaps in Australia! We will also be using Morse code – so you can see how radio was used during the war.
If you are licensed, listen out for our special licence callsign GB2BRS (Bawdsey Radar Station).
