Friday 5 July marks the Centenary of the Radio Society of Great Britain and to celebrate, a weekend of events is planned. In the first minute of Friday, V series Notices of Variation – that’s GV, MV and 2V – become valid. To use this prefix you must first get a Notice of Variation, which is available free at www.rsgb.org/centenarynov. Later on Friday, the official Centenary celebration takes place at Bletchley Park. Based around the RSGB National Radio Centre, the day will include a re-creation of the late Dud Charman’s famous ‘Aerial Circus’, talks, an ARDF event and a Buildathon. As our Patron is indisposed, the Guest of Honour will be Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, Bt JP. The Centenary Dinner at Horwood House rounds off the day. Saturday sees the RSGB Barbecue on the Air, where clubs across the country will be arranging barbecues and fun events. The suggested operating frequencies are 144.250MHz SSB or 145.550MHz FM. The RSGB hopes to feature photographs and write-ups in RadCom and on its website, and invites submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
