Special Event Station GB5BK

Members of RAF Waddington Amateur Radio Club activated the site of the former RAF Binbrook airfield on the weekend of 9-10 April as part of Airfields on the Air. We used the Special Event Station callsign GB5BK, as “BK” was the airfield’s radio ident. in the days when it was operational.

A good weekend was had by all and we would like to thank the many stations who took the time to call us. See qrz.com for QSL details.

You can learn more about the history of RAF Binbrook here.
