The launch took place at 17/03/1938. "GGCN" was HMS Belfast's marine callsign.
To commemorate this event we will activate the special Call sign
GB80GGCN from the Bridge Wireless Office
from 01st March 2018 until 31st May 2018 inclusive..
A special QSL card will be printed to confirm all contacts.

We look forward to catching you on the bands, 7-10-14 MHz and perhaps above if condx OK;
CW/SSB and increasingly FT8 (mainly 7 and 14 MHz on Mondays).
Weekend March 17-18, the actual birthday, will be the key dates to have a QSO - if we
can hear you over the noise from firing the 4" guns.
But you have 3 months to get into the log.
Some impression to our Arrival and Easter Saturday, 31/03/2018.
Happy Easter, dear friends
More to follow
