Ofcom has issued this unique ‘Special Event Callsign’ to be used from 19th to 23rd May inclusive, and we believe it may be the first time that the ‘GR9’ prefix has ever been active.
The special callsign GR9RW will be active for five days in May to mark the occasion of the Royal Wedding between HRH. Prince Harry and Ms. Megan Markle is due to take place on 19th May 2018 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in England. This commemorative amateur radio station will be operated by members of the Cray Valley Radio Society from their shack in Eltham, south-east London, UK.
GR9RW will primarily use SSB and CW, and additionally FM on the VHF and UHF bands. Two HF stations and one VHF station will be active and will cover all bands from 80m to 70cm.  A very special QSL card will be sent on request, and cards can also be requested via OQRS.
Please see the club’s web site www.cvrs.org for further detail and look on the QRZ page for GR9RW for details of the station and how to obtain the special QSL card. Up to date information will also be posted on the Cray Valley Radio Society Twitter feed: @G3RCV.
