05/10/2013: On 18th October 1924, the first radio communication contact between the UK and New Zealand took place between 2SZ at Mill Hill School, the station operated by Cecil Goyder, and 4AA in Shag Valley, South Island, New Zealand, operated by Frank Bell. The Radio Society of Great Britain, in partnership with groups of UK Amateurs in the UK and New Zealand, invites participation in celebration of the 90th anniversary of this event in October 2014 by recreating that original contact between the UK and New Zealand on the 80m band. For 2013, there will be activity preparing for the celebrations in 2014 and the special call GB2NZ will be active to stimulate the interest in celebrating the event from 5th to 25th October 2013. It is suggested that those with suitably equipped stations might like to join in the "dry run" tests in October 2013 on 80m. Others may like to make contacts with New Zealand amateurs on the HF bands. Contacts on both CW and SSB are encouraged and GB2NZ will be active on both modes, on 80m when there is propagation but otherwise on other HF bands. Elsewhere on this website (gb2nz.com/), you will find predicted propagation between the UK and New Zealand for 18th October 2013. Either side of this date, the propagation will generally follow the same pattern.

The tank is mounted on a plinth at the entrance to Leyland and the operators will be alongside the tank, so operations are very weather dependant. The call is on the air from 6-31 of October. QSL info - please do not send them your card. They will automatically send a QSL card via the RSGB bureau. Direct is fine with SAE to Pam, 2E1HQY QTHr. [Southgate ARC]
