No GO at G4ILO

From May 5 until June 10 British amateur radio stations that have been granted permission to do so may use the prefix GQ, MQ and 2Q0 in place of their regular G, M or 2x0. For the duration of the 2012 Olympic Games British amateurs may use GO, MO and 2O0 instead of their normal calls.

As a sport-hating republican (and I don't mean the American political party of the same name) G4ILO will continue to use the callsign that has declared me to be an ENGLISH amateur radio operator for the last 30-odd years. So now you know!

Good morning Julian, I would say very well said and you sure leave no room for misunderstanding......:)

Yes I have some paint I could usefully watch dry instead, or disk defragging, but just see the excitement of some hams at the prospect! They seem to think it makes them exotic DX.
