The special event station is part of an alliance to raise awareness of World Suicide Prevention Day. Every year on 10th September, organisations and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
In 2018, in the UK and Republic of Ireland, more than 6,800 people died of suicide. And we know that suicide is preventable, it’s not inevitable.
GB1WSP (World Suicide Prevention) will be on air between 0700 and 2400 UTC on Thursday, 10 September 2020 mainly operating on the HF bands, 80m,40m and 20m.
The station will be managed by John (G0MTQ) on behalf of Samaritans of West Cumbria and stations contacted can get further details of the special event by visiting QRZ.com. John (G0MTQ)
