 GB200T antenna at the National Maritime Museum

The antenna mast at GB200T, which we operated in October 2005 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. Like 2O12L, the station was located in the London Borough of Greenwich. The site was the National Maritime museum, and here you see the 20m guyed mast 'dressed overall' with signal flags. All bands 80m-70cm were operational from this station, using a number of antennas on one mast.

 A feature of all our demonstration stations is to encourage members of the public to pass greetings messages. Here, a cub scout is being assisted by Simon M3CVN and Richard G3YJW.
