CARA holds the callsign G5BK. This callsign was originally held many years ago by the late Bill Brown, a well known and active local radio amateur.
CARA uses G5BK in contests such as National Field Day and occasionally for special events.
The callsign is available for use by any CARA member holding a Full Amateur Radio Licence who wishes to represent the club on the air in, for example, a contest or at a special event. If you wish to use G5BK please seek the prior permission of the G5BK licence holder, currently Tony G3SNN.
Members using G5BK should send a copy of the logs to the G5BK QSL manager, currently Tony G3SNN.
Please remember that if you use G5BK in a contest you are entering that contest on behalf of CARA; if you are using it for another purpose you are still operating on behalf of CARA.
