GB3RS is the RSGB’s purpose built Amateur Radio demonstration station. It is located at the National Radio Centre in the Bletchley Park museum, home of the code breakers, where the enigma code was broken during the second world war.
The radio centre, housed in newly built accommodation, is an educational showcase for radio communications and has a state of the art HF and Satellite Amateur Radio station. The centre is open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 1100 hrs to 1600hrs.
Visitors are first shown a short introductory film, and then wander past radios from the earliest 1920 radio transmitters to the latest technology in amateur radio communications. There are numerous interactive dispays to try and finally the Demonstration station where visitors can, if they wish, talk to Radio Amateurs around the world on HF radios or via Amateur Satellites using the special call sign GB3RS.
