What we do

RADCOM

Every month members receive a copy of the UK’s biggest and best amateur radio magazine. Pages are packed with the latest news, reviews and advice on amateur radio – a must for everyone who is interested in radio.

QSL BUREAU

A service that enables you to exchange QSL (confirmation of a radio contact) cards in bulk at a fraction of the cost of posting them yourself, especially if the other person is overseas!

RSGB MEMBERS ONLY WEBSITE SECTIONS

Parts of the web site exclusively for members, containing searchable archive material, technical tips, special offers, free software and links.

BOOK DISCOUNTS

RSGB Members receive a 15% discount on the Society’s extensive list of some 200 amateur radio books , tapes, CDs, t-shirts etc

CONTESTS

RSGB organises over 60 contests each year for its members. How many radio contacts can you make in the time specified? The more the better – the further the better!

AWARDS

An award to hang on your wall for making contact with different amateur radio stations. Many awards are available to RSGB members including ones for contacting 100+ different Commonwealth stations, or 30+ stations in Europe and Africa, or on the 10 GHz band, for a single contact over 150 km.

MEMBERS ADS

The place to advertise your surplus radio, or to buy second user equipment is in RadCom. Members receive a special advertisement rate in the premier UK amateur radio magazine with the largest UK circulation.

IOTA

Probably the best DX Awared Programme “Islands on the Air” (IOTA) offers special discounts to RSGB members.

PLANNING ADVICE

A large aerial system almost certainly will need planning permission. Our free booklet just for members “Planning Permission: Advice for Members” provides excellent advice on how to maximise your chances of getting this important permission. Further help on a one to one basis is available through the efforts of our Planning Panel.

EMC ADVICE

Our EMC Co-ordinators and Committee provide members with specific help in solving those ellusive break-through problems.
