As a celebration of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, two flagship amateur radio stations will be active during the Games as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
The Cray Valley Radio Society is to host England’s celebration from the Royal Borough of Greenwich, home to many of London’s events outside the main Olympic arena. The call-sign used will be 2O12L (two Oscar one two Lima).
A similar amateur radio celebration is happening in Barry, south Wales, where the call-sign will be 2O12W (two Oscar one two whisky).
Both teams are looking to make as many contacts as possible throughout the world during the Games, particularly with countries participating in the Games. They will be operating 24/7 from Wednesday 25 th July until Sunday 9 th September and will be open to the public from Thursday 26 th July. The London station will be open from 10am to 4pm and the Welsh station from 10am to 5pm daily.
Commemorative QSLs will be available for both stations, QSL details are on the web site. It is hoped that Clublog and LOTW uploads will be made during the event.
For more information about the stations, their locations, operating frequencies etc., their web-sites can be found at www.2o12l.com and www.2o12w.com.
