Dover Amateur Radio Club are putting on a coach trip Bletchley Park on Saturday 5th October. This includes the opportunity to visit the RSGB's National Radio Centre (GB3RS). This trip will be free for club members and a guest.
Bletchley Park is a nineteenth-century mansion and estate near Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. It has received latter-day fame as the central site for British codebreakers during World War II, although at the time of their operation this fact was a closely guarded secret. During the Second World War, the estate housed the British Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS)
