The London Olympics special event station, 2012L, is on the air. Says the website,
The call sign of the London Flagship Amateur Radio Station celebrating the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. This unique amateur radio special event radio station is based at the Royal Greenwich District Scouts Activity Centre in New Eltham, south-east London. Eltham is in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, one of the six “host boroughs” for the Games.
We plan to make at least 60,000 contacts during the seven weeks of round the clock operation. The first contact was made on the afternoon of Wednesday 25th July, when the first Games football event took place in Cardiff. Operation will continue until the end of the Paralympics on Sunday 9th September.
They have been apparently generating huge pileups, especially on 20m. I’m hoping to work them before they close down.
GW0RYT informs me via Twitter that there is also an Olympic special event station, 2012W, in Wales.
