2O12L – London Olympic Games and Paralympics

    2O12L will be the callsign of the London ham radio station celebrating the Olympic Games and Paralympics.

    Based at Eltham Palace, which is in the Borough of Greenwich, one of the six ‘host boroughs’ for the Games, five stations will be active simultaneously, three on HF and two on VHF.

    Operation will cover the period of the Olympics and Paralympics, and the two weeks in between. In total we plan to make at least 60,000 contacts during the seven week period. Visitors may view an exhibition about radio communications and electronics, and sit down at the radio and make contact with amateur radio operators right around the world. We are also offering ‘bite-sized’ talks giving an overview of radio and its importance in the modern world.

    All hams who visit the Olympics, from anywhere around the world, are encouraged to visit 2O12L. Eltham Palace is easily reached by bus from Greenwich
