National Radio Centre – GB3RS

The RSGB National Radio Centre (NRC) will re-open to visitors from Monday, 31 January 2022 and will be open seven days a week.

Visitors will be encouraged to wear face masks although this will not be mandatory.

The number of people accessing the radio room will be limited and, for the time being, visiting radio amateurs will not be able to operate the GB3RS station.

The voucher system for RSGB Members to gain free admission to the NRC will be available again from midday on 30 January 2022 and you will no longer need to book an arrival time at Bletchley Park.

Run by the Radio Society of Great Britain, the National Radio Centre (NRC) is a showcase for radio communications technology

The National Radio Centre provides the opportunity to discover the history and development of radio from its outset through to modern communication methods.

NRC volunteers wanted

Want to play your part at the NRC?

With over 97,000 visitors to the NRC in 2019, we are looking to recruit additional volunteers to engage with the public and give radio demonstrations.

If you’re interested in becoming an NRC volunteer you should be passionate about meeting people, feel confident explaining the hobby, as well as operating the NRC’s radio station, GB3RS.

You should be a licensed amateur, an RSGB member and be prepared to work a minimum of one (preferably two) days per month.

You will be joining a team of enthusiastic, friendly and dedicated volunteers and full training will be given.

Travel expenses are paid to volunteers living within reasonable travelling distance and NRC volunteers enjoy numerous benefits associated with volunteering at Bletchley Park.
