Hi Eddy,

Thanks for the message--we really appreciate the
interest.  We don't currently have the Ar-88 but I know we will have an
HRO (ex RCAF), our 19 set, and a model 28 KSR that is original to the
camp. We'll be putting out some RTTY, but not with the heavy metal(this
year).  I havent heard what the other amateur radops are bringing for
vintage as of yet.  I will have my trusty AN/GRC-19 there
though to keep up appearances  
Interesting point with the
AR-88's, they were actually the second style of xcvr used there.  First
sets were HRO's used at the farm house becase the staion wasn't
complete.  The AR-88's came into play once the triple rhombics were set
up-hence the triple diversity.  Operated quite nicely when working
Bletchley Park.  
Post war the built a new solid concrete
building which housed the big transmitter which put out in the area of 125
KW.  Out of interest that building is/was located under the berm
beneath the monument.  Guess we'll find out when we start digging our
test holes for the museum!  

Cheers,
Matthew

Hi

Does your group have plans to include a vintage, 40's era
site, as well as the more modern gear...?
