About Radio Station GB1BM


GB1BM is a special event amateur radio station set up for special events only operational certain days of the week and for special Wireless, or Brooklands related events. It is always worth checking however, with HRD Log (link below) to see if we are On-Air and on what frequency. If you would like to arrange a QSO with GB1BM, please contact  Peter (see the links page).

On the 3rd of August 2014 Peter Burton who was operating our Radio Station GB1BM, was surprised to see Lord Trefgarne arrive with HRH Prince Michael of Kent and Aviator Tracey Curtis-Taylor. It seemed Lord Trefgarne (a keen aviator himself) wanted to show his two fellow pilots some of the work we are doing to restore Brooklands place in the history of Aviation Communications. They had all been guests at the Brooklands Museum Great War Centenary event, where many pre 1918 vehicles were allowed to parade and drive on the banking. The video recording of this visit and other events on the same day can be seen here
