HMS "Belfast"

The RNARS London (HMS "Belfast") Group held their usual yearly activity on board HMS Belfast. For this special occasion members travelled from many countries to be heard all across the bands worldwide with the call sign GB2RN. This is the amateur station which is situated in the bridge wireless office (BWO) on board the cruiser HMS Belfast.

March 2018 will see the 80th anniversary of the HMS "Belfast".
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.
