GB0RSR –
ICOM’s Special Event station on the Red Sands offshore fort

ICOM UK recently launched GB0RSR; the special event station based on Red Sands Forts – the Thames Estuary Maunsell Army Sea Forts, located 7 nautical miles off the North Kent coast.

On air over the weekend commencing Friday the 11th of July, the station was operated by ICOM UK Managing Director Phil Hadler, G4CZU, ICOM UK Amateur Radio Product Specialist John Turner, G0KFO and ICOM UK Radio Technician Chris Ridley, G8GKC. This was the first special event station that they had operated, and they were soon riveted by the response of Amateur Radio operators globally.
