South Essex Amateur Radio Society to operate Olympic Special Event Station
The South Essex Amateur Radio Society will be operating GB1HF, a Special Event Station for the Olympic Games 2012,
from 27 July to 23 August. The Station will be operated at various times and days during the 28 days on all modes and bands. For the men’s and women’s Olympic Mountain Bike competitions on the 11 and 12 August 2012.
The venue encompasses farmland owned by The Salvation Army called Hadleigh Farm and the adjacent Country Park, and the open hillside setting will offer challenging gradients for riders as well as superb viewing opportunities for spectators, Because of a security lock down in that local area it is not possible to operate the amateur Radio Station there, so we have decided to use another site which is still in Castle Point at the bottom of the Benfleet downs looking up to the site from the other side of Benfleet Creak.
