Description

Amazingly it is 20 years since Cray Valley's first high-profile special event station, which set the record for the most number of QSOs ever made by a special event. Ranger's House on Blackheath was flanked by two masts carrying HF antennas and a third for VHF, and the station was active for two months making over 47,000 QSOs.
 
Some of the original team give an account of the planning and execution of this huge undertaking, interspersed with video clips of the operation.
