Dambusters special event station GB70DAM

On the 16/17th May 2013 the Lincoln Short Wave Club are operating a Special Event Station in memory of the Air Crew and German civilians killed during the now-famous 617 Squadron’s raid on the great Ruhr dams of Germany.

The station will be on RAF Scampton’s bomb dump which is where Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb would have been delivered on 16th May 1943.

The station will start at 15.00 local time on 16th May 2013 and transmit through the night on 40 and 80 metres 3.617 MHz band conditions permitting. Transmissions will cease at 15.00 local time on the 17th May 2013. A sked has been arranged with an amateur who will be visiting the Mohne Dam on the 17th probably the first time a qso has taken place between the dam and RAF Scampton since the raid.

A very special Limited Edition QSL card will be available of the Dambusters raid details on
