Dear friends,

I would like to inform you about the special radioamateur station OL80CLAY. This station celebrates the 80th anniversary of the dropping the CLAY paratroops in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia during the WWII, known as Operation Clay.

This paratroops, like many others, were trained in Britain by SOE and then sent to occupied Czechoslovakia. So, I suppose that special stations like this may interest British radioamateurs, specially those interested in WWII military history.

The paratroops CLAY used radiostation with cover name EVA and they kept regular contacts with the Military Radio Central (VRU) in London. By this special station we want to remember even this radio operations.

We want to start our transmission on 12th February 2024.
Please, can you inform your members about this event, we thank in advance very much to all those who will try to contact us specially on this day.

OL80CLAY will be active till 30th June 2024.

Thank you very much for your kind attention to my letter, we are looking forward to many contacts.


Best regards, 73,
Pavel, OK2BMA
