The 200th Anniversary of the birth of Ada Lovelace on 10 December 1815 will be commemorated with an Amateur Radio Special Event Station GB200ADA at Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire, on 10th to 13th December 2015.

Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron, is internationally recognized as the author of the first computer algorithm which was written for the 'Difference Engine' designed by Charles Babbage to increase the accuracy of astronomical calculations. In 1847, she also predicted that the use of algorithms and computers would some day have far wider applications in science.

This event is organized by the Phoenix Radio Group in partnership with the Youth Hostels Amateur Radio Group. Newstead Abbey is open to visitors on the event days. Opening times can be found on .

A special, self-service, downloadable certificate will be available to everyone who makes contact with the Special Event Station GB200AD.
