The stations at 2O12L have been designed to enable simultaneous operation on three HF bands and two VHF bands. We will initally be active on SSB and CW only, but after about two weeks on the air we will start to operate datamodes - RTTY and PSK31 only.


Much of the equipment in use at the station comes from the Cray Valley club or from members and supporters and we are extremely grateful to them for making these items available.
