GB80BRS/GB80CH - Special Evento Stations from England

In August
Two special event stations will be active in August to mark the critical role that radar played in the Battle of Britain 80 years ago. GB80BRS will be operated to commemorate Bawdsey Radar Station in Suffolk, which was the location of the world's first operational radar station. GB80CH will be operated from Chelmsford in Essex, which has the most complete surviving radar tower from the Battle of Britain; the callsign's suffix stands for Chain Home, the code- name for the ring of coastal early warning radar stations built by the Royal Air Force.
