    Ham radio to feature on BBC Countryfile

    Posted: 04 Jun 2022 06:51 AM PDT https://feedpress.me/link/22841/15349837/ham-radio-on-bbc-countryfile.html



    Ham radio is set to be featured on national TV on Sunday the 5th of June.




    The BBCs popular Countryfile programme airs nationally on BBC One at 6pm,
    and is set on Flat Holm Island in the Bristol Channel. This location was
    home of one of the Marconi sites involved in sending radio signals over the sea.



    We understand that presenters Ellie Harrison and Matt Baker will be with leading SOTA (Summits on the Air) operator Ben Lloyd GW4BML, covering the
    setup of a portable station on the island so that he can activate the
    location as a SOTA station.

    Hopefully, this will be some great PR for the hobby. Please add / share
    this on social media so that we can get as many people to watch.
