Avro Lancaster 80th Anniversary Of The 1st Operational Sortie

In March 1942 the first sorties of the AVRO Lancaster aircraft took place. This commemorative event for Lancaster aircraft is being simultaneously partnered in the UK by callsign GB80LAN; and, in Canada by callsign VE80LAN organised by Hamilton Amateur Radio Club, and Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and, in Australia by callsign VK80LAN organised by the Western Australian VHF Group. They want to commemorate those involved with the Lancaster.

Also of interest, is that the Lincoln Short Wave Club will be operating GB6IBC from the International Bomber Command Memorial on 5th March 2022.

Unusually Ofcom has given permission for the call to be used at several different locations. Currently confirmed operations will take place from the three active RAF Station Amateur Radio Clubs at RAF Waddington, RAF Cosford and RAF Halton. Also the call will be on the air from ex RAF East Kirkby which is now the home of the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre and Lancaster “Just Jane”.

CURRENT SCHEDULE:- (subject to amendment)

  • RAF WADDINGTON 2nd – 8th

  • RAF EAST KIRKBY 9th – 12th

  • RAF COSFORD 15th – 21st

  • RAF HALTON 1st & 22nd – 28th

In Australia, the WA VHF Group requested for the special event call sign VK80LAN to be available through March. VK80LAN hopes to be operating from the radio room in the Lancaster Bomber at the RAAFA Aviation Heritage Museum in Bull Creek, a suburb of Perth. A roster of operators wishing to take advantage of operating the special event callsign during the month is being drawn up.

Further info is available from the QRZ pages and Museum links as only snippets have been included here – https://www.qrz.com/db/VK80LAN

Also, checkout the WoSARS CALENDAR entry as to who is working the stations.

GB100 2MT (‘Two-Emma-Toc’) marking the Centenary of British Broadcasting – Special Event station 14th February Only!!!

(EDIT (COX) 14th – See POST#1946 . (TDX & COX work them at Writtle))

On 14th February 1922 the Marconi Company began to broadcast a five-minute program of speech and music within the weekly half-hour calibration transmission. The broadcasts were made weekly on Tuesday made using the callsign 2MT from an ex-army hut in the village of Writtle near Chelmsford. Initially, the station had only 200 Watts and transmitted on 700m (428 kHz) using an inverted-L antenna.

The enthusiastic team, led by Captain Peter Eckersley, assembled their transmitter together with a gramophone player, microphone, and on occasions a piano from the local public house, to entertain listeners. The regular announcement; “This is Two Emma Toc, Writtle testing, Writtle testing”, became quite well known.

This was the first regular wireless broadcast for entertainment in the UK and its success provided the foundation for the formation of the BBC later in 1922.

Members of Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society (CARS) will operate a special event station to commemorate this historic event. A special callsign, GB100-2MT, is active during February – and on 14th February will operate from Writtle, close to where the original broadcasts were made. Operating will be on HF, as well as locally on VHF/UHF.

QSOs will be confirmed on LOTW and eQSL. Sorry no QSL cards, or bureau.

Sadly we report that John GM4PLI has become a silent key. He was a long standing member of WoSARS and was always good for a chat on GB3CS or PA. John was unfortunate to never have good health, but soldiered on as best he could. John’s Funeral is on Monday 4th Oct at 11am at Dalnotter Cremetorium – More information – HERE .

From John GM0KTO (Saturday 2nd Oct – 1734hrs) :-

“………….Alan Stark, GM0BUE, whose QTH was in Kilsyth, became a Silent Key on Thursday 9 September, 2021. He had become a victim of COVID-19.

His brother, John, thinks that Alan might have been a former member of WoSARS.
The funeral is on Saturday 9 October, at New Monkland Cemetery, Condorrat Road (B802), Glenmavis.  09.15. Church Service 10.00, followed by a buffet.
I was privileged to work GM0BUE on 6m FM, possibly through GB3SL, while walking the dogs in Alexandra Park. This was quite some time ago and certainly before lock-down……………”
