Locations

Amateur Radio Stations G6JVT and GB6SMD are located in the southern England coastal town of Worthing in the county of West Sussex. Worthing is about 90 Kilometres south of the Olympic City of London, 29 Kilometres east of the historic City of Chichester, and 27 Kilometres west of the City of Brighton and Hove. The town is situated between the sea to the south, and  the picturesque South Downs National Park with chalk hills that rises up to 240 meters to the north.
Check out the pictures of Worthing and the surrounding areas in my gallery, all these pictures were taken by my wife.

As can be seen on the map below both stations are located in built up areas. My home station (G6JVT) is about 2 Kilometres from the sea, and St. Matthew’s church (GB6SMD) is about 1.5 Kilometres from the sea. Worthing is quite flat and so both stations are only about 8 Meters above sea level.

The map coordinates and references below are provided for logging purposes, they show geographical areas of the stations only, and are not suitable for directions, or postal information.
