Forthcoming book on GKA

I am currently in the final stages of writing the complete history of Portishead Radio/GKA. I still have a little bit of research to complete on some of the services which the station offered, but intend to have my first draft completed by the end of March.

2020 is the 100th anniversary of the long-range maritime radio service in the UK which started from Devizes Radio/GKT in 1920, so this year would probably the opportune time to get the history published.

To make some light reading between the (necessary) technical information, I would be very pleased to receive any stories about working GKA (factual or humorous), any comments about the station over the years, or simply a few memories of the old place. All stories used will be credited, unless any names need to be changed to protect the innocent. Or even if you wish to remain anonymous…..

You can send an email via the website link on – or directly to if you like.

I will of course give the book full publicity when available to purchase.
