G2YT was issued to F J Rumary of Down Road, Redcliffe Bay, Portishead, Somerset in 1936. Originally, nothing was known about this station but in August 2006 a G2YT QSL card was found dated 1936! The is now an update to this, see G2YT 1936 below.
G2YT was issued to Crispin Redshaw, G4VZ of Bridport Road, Dorchester in Dorset. The exact circumstances and date of this re-issue is not known but Cris is recorded as using G2YT from his Dorchester station in December 1957.
Crispin Redshaw became a ‘silent key’ in 1974.
