GB2HA Special Event Station for H.M.S. Hood
Updated 06-May-2014

This is an periodic event for licensed radio amateurs around the world. Like this website, it too is an official function of the H.M.S. Hood Association. It is managed by Malcolm Butler, a long time friend of H.M.S. Hood Association Treasurer and former crew member, Ken "Nobby" Clark and family.

GB2HA ImageThe first GB2HA H.M.S. Hood Special Event station was held in 1995 and has proven to be a popular annual event, boasting participation from many licensed amateur radio operators from around the world. They generally call-in to discuss their memories of the Mighty Hood.

The last two events were held in 2006 and 2003. Both went quite well. Although we don't have the specifics for the 2006 event, we do know that the 2003 event was one of the busiest on record, with over 200 contacts from around the world (though contacts were heaviest throughout Europe).
