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. We would like to thank the many radio amateurs who contacted us during the SES.
