Description

Wikipedia (July 2011):
B During World War II, Bletchley Park was the site of the United Kingdom's main decryption establishment, the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) where ciphers and codes of several Axis countries were decrypted, most importantly the ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines. It also housed Station X, a secret radio intercept station.
 

Diplomatic Wireless Service

In Hut 1 you can see original wireless and landline communications equipment as used at Bletchley Park during World War II. The wireless stations received and transmitted secret Bletchey Park ULTRA and DIPLOMATIC messages to our overseas outposts and bases.
Open weekends only.
 

Milton Keynes Amateur Radio Society

A working radio communications centre operated by members of the Milton Keynes Amateur Radio Society. Amateur (Ham) Radio remains a popular scientific hobby, and this installation is comprised of modern technology as well as a working collection of vintage historical equipment. Contacts can be made all over the world via the aerial systems on the roof of B-block. There are regular demonstrations of radio communication using speech, morse code, video, and various forms of text messaging.
 

Explore Bletchley Park

In keeping with Bletchley Park’s restoration project, to create a world-class heritage site, the site now boasts a Visitor Centre, restored buildings and refreshed exhibits to preserve and commemorate the tireless work of the Codebreakers. Highly atmospheric soundscapes play snatches of conversation, music, laughter and even a hint of romance, as well as the noises of bicycle bells and steam trains to conjure up how it would have sounded during wartime Bletchley Park. The landscape is being returned to its tranquil setting, with areas returned to lawn and the footprints of the long-gone Huts 2 and 9 marked out to remind visitors where they were. The tennis courts have also been restored to grass, as they were in late 1940 and early 1941.
