Massive thanks to everyone who came along this weekend, it must have been one of the best and most productive times we have had!

The new carpet is down from front to rear blast doors, the kitchen has been transformed and improved with a massive clean and tidy up, the group balcony radio console has transmitted out on a real radio via the telephone system for the first time and we have done many bits of painting, scanning, fixing and started a project to populate the manning board with tags for every crew member who was working in the bunker at stand down.

The biggest news of the weekend was getting the Message Exchange Switch talking to the outside world again after being switched off in 1991. That’s a completely unique exhibit, there is nobody else in the world with an MSX which works so we are incredibly proud of that achievement. Big thanks to the technical team for sticking with it over a decade of work and many weekends where we’d made no progress at all!

Thank you one and all, we couldn’t do it without you!
