National Radio Centre Opens   July 19th, 2012

The new National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park, Bedford was officially opened on Wednesday 11th July by Govt Minister Ed Vaizey.

Waters & Stanton were invited along to the ceremony as supporters of the new venture, having donated Heil headsets to the radio station at the venue. Jeff Stanton was very impressed with what the RSGB has built to showcase Amateur Radio & communications technology.

Bletchley Park was of course the home of code-breaking work during the Second World War and now boasts an increasingly popular museum, which the new NRC compliments superbly. 

Below are some pictures that Jeff Stanton took during his visit to the National Radio Centre.

The National Radio Centre is currently open to the public from 11am to 4.30pm on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday each week.
