Operating G8WY

Posted on

Here I am operating the Bolton Wireless Club station G8WY for the 80m Club Contest earlier this week. Bill G4CFP is logging the contacts on the computer. Using a Yaesu FT991 and 80m Dipole.
Brings back lots of memories with the G8WY callsign. Originally from the 1920’s, It was reborn back in 1972 when the Bolton and District Amateur Radio Society took it over for the club callsign. When the club folded the callsign was never renewed. It was recently taken over by the Bolton Wireless Club and is used for contests and special event stations just like it was in the old days.

Great to be able to use Golf Eight Whisky Yankee again!
