Operators will be on air with the Amateur Radio Station, GB4SMH as usual. Just go to the Guardroom with photo ID, passport, driving licence or over 60s bus pass to get a free entry ticket.

The museum was founded when, in 1999, a new home was needed for the small collection of radio and electronic memorabilia from the defunct museum attached to No. 1 Radio School at RAF Locking.

The Commandant at RAF Henlow at that time, Air Commodore Mike Davison, had previously also been the Commandant at Locking and was keen for the collection to find a home, preferably at Henlow which has had good links with radio, radar and electronics for many years.
