"GB80CH Special Event"
GBARC & CARS Members
August sees another very special event, following on from the success in June with GB100MZX celebrating the Dame Nellie Melba centenary.
This time it is for the 80th anniversary of the crucial role that radar played in the Battle of Britain. The Chain Home Radar system was key to supporting early warning and coordination, and was the inital focus of events on 12-August 1940, 80 years ago.
CARS Members are invited to support GB80CH which has been granted to BAE Systems in Great Baddow
Such events do not happen every month, so please do come forward and make the most of another historic opportunity for some on air-radio!
GB80CH will be mainly on HF, as well as the CARS DA-2m, ER-70cm & 80m Tuesday Nets
CARS Members who wish to be operate should contact Paul G4PVM indicating timeslots and bands/modes they are able to commit to (HF/VHF, SSB/CW/Data or AM/FM), so they can be 'authorised'.
Other SES marking the occasion are GB80BRS (Bawdsey Radar Suffolk) and GB0VCH (Ventnor, IoW)
