The station is being operated by members of the Lincoln Short Wave Club, our shack is less than a mile from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. The station is to remember the RAF Aircrew and the German Civilians who lost their lives in the ffamous raid on the Ruhr Dams of Northern Germany.

The first wave of Lancaster Bombers of RAF 617 Squadron took off at 21.28. The second wave lead by Wing Commander Guy Gibson took off from Scampton at approx. 21.38 on the evening of 16th May 1943. The first Bouncing Bomb designed by Barns Walliss was dropped on the Mohnes Dam shortly after 02.00 on the morning of 17th May 1943. Raid followed later on the Sorpa and the Aida dams causing severe damage to the industries of the Ruhr Valley.

Sixty Nine years ago tonight we could have stood out side our shack and counted the Lancasters and back in again next morning.
