1987 GB2SM (08)

Photo of the former amateur radio station GB2SM at the Science Museum, London, 1987. The station was set up by Gerald Garratt, G5CS, in 1955. Unfortunately the station was removed sometime in 1994. Currently the SM call sign GB2SM is available for occasional use by the Swindon & District ARC (G8SRC).


The reason for the closure of GB2SM was given as: There is no future in radio communications and therefore it is unlikely that the youngsters of tomorrow will be interested in it as a hobby. Read more:
