Operations at 2O12L

Operations at 2O12L (Two-oscar-one-two-London) the flagship station celebrating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have been progressing beyond the expectations of the organisers.

In the first 12 days of operation, the station had made a remarkable 31,000 contacts with over 20,000 unique stations in 175 different countries.

Demand to work the station is very high and pile-ups are fierce at times. The best two bands for world-wide communication have proved to be 20m and 17m, whilst many contacts with UK stations have been completed on 40m and 30m.

The station remains open to the public daily from 10am until 4pm until 9 September.
