UK Air Cadets 5MHz Radio Exercise

Air Cadets on the Air - Exercise Blue Ham 2016 

On 18 and 19 June 2016, the ACO (Air Cadet Organisation) will be organising and running a military style national radio exercise named ‘Exercise Blue Ham’, this will be one of the many events the organisation is holding to mark its 75th Anniversary of Formation during 2016-17.

To make this successful we would like to invite Amateur Radio Operators to take part with us and make this the biggest radio exercise that the organisation has been involved in.

The exercise will take place on the MOD 5MHz (60 Meters) Band and a significant part of the exercise will be on the section of the band that amateurs are authorised to use.

The cadets operate from noon 18th till noon 19th. Main exercise Callsigns will all be in the range MRE01 up to MRE98 although other MR, MF and MA prefixed callsigs may be taking part. The information exchange to score the contact will be your Callsign, signal report, your Location, Transmitter Power, Antenna type and Direction.

  2. Hallo Hans, het heeft al op diverse sites gestaan. Ik wil het vanavond wel proberen. Wanneer kun je nou met een militair station legaal verbinding maken? Niet vaak! 73, Bas
