Special Event Station GB6SHK, September 2022

We ran a Special Event Station, using the callsign GB6SHK, at Newark Air Museum during the museum’s event on 10th September 2022 commemorating the 65th Anniversary of Avro Shackleton WR977 entering RAF service.

We operated on HF bands using a mixture of voice and CW, and also on 2m. Our thanks to those radio amateurs who contacted us during the event, in what were quiet conditions on the bands. Our QSL details can be found here.
