David - I know you posted 'ages' ago but is this of any interest ?

There's some information here about Hunstanton, on page 21:-

Sorry I've not looked for anything about Skegness yet...

My apologies if you've already seen these...

Thanks for the info John. I cannot fully remember what I wanted the info for after the years. I cannot see any reference to Grimsby/BYV which was built by the Admiralty during WW1 and certainly transmitted the Armistice signal at 1108 on 11.11.18. It was part of HMS Pekin I believe. It was handed over to the GPO in 1920 when it became GKZ, and moved south to Trusthorpe near Mablethorpe (no room for DF at Grimsby)

Try looking at this BBC documantary of 1979, it opens with Rene Cutforth on the cliffs at Hunstanton and follows on from WW1 interception to the WW2 Voluntary Interceptors.
