This is GB2WSW calling CQ

The FUNcube satellite set-up was demonstrated at the Thanet Observatory over the weekend as part of World Space Week. A special event radio station, with the call sign GB2WSW, was also operated within the Observatory and the photo shows Chris Turner and Bob MacDonald speaking to other radio enthusiasts across the country. The club set a challenge for some youngsters to find a hidden radio transmitter. They had no problem  tracking it down by picking up its signal.
