Subject: [WUN] All of you Lowfers and your request for information on
My son is a sub commander in the Canadian Navy. I asked him if he would
into Costa's request for QSL information some time ago on the special
xmission. Here is his reply. Hope this is of use to you all.
Best Regards, Eric // Atlanta, Georgia
As requested I've done some investigation for you regarding a QSL card.
you may or may not know GBR is a series of radio stations operated by
British Telecom? This station normally transmits encrypted MSK
from Northwood (the controlling authority) to surface and sub-surface
units operating in the Eastern Atlantic. Anyway, at the request of MoD
29 May 01 they interrupted their usual transmission for about 4 hours
transmit the submarine centenary message you passed to me.
The radio station that actually originated the transmission is located
Rugby. Yes, the place where the game originated. I've contacted the
station manager, Mr. Malcolm Hancock and he indicated that they are
currently looking into producing QSL cards for the transmission.
or any of your colleagues like to request one, a request can be sent
Mr. Malcolm Hancock
Additionally, should you need to give him a call he can be contacted
(44) 1788 545 086. Hope this helps.
