The club has decided in the New Year we will run a special event station at the end of January. Under Covid rules we will be able to run a special event call from our own individual home QTH.
The call will be GB8KOA, the number 8 is for King Henry the VIII
KOA is for Katherine of Aragon who is buried at Peterborough Cathedral (did not get her head chopped off)
The Katherine of Aragon Festival commemorates 29th January 1536, when Henry VIII's first wife was buried at Peterborough Cathedral after her death in exile at Kimbolton Castle.
The Cathedral events run from the 27th to 30th January.
