Jubilee special event call signs – GB70

RSGB “Special” Special Event Stations were activated from the four UK Home Nations and three Crown Dependencies. The call signs were: GB70E England, GB70M Scotland, GB70W Wales, GB70I Northern Ireland, GB70J Jersey, GB70U Guernsey and GB70D Isle of Man.

The UK regulator, Ofcom, licensed a series of special call signs that were active only during June 2022, including from 2-5 June 2022, which was the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend in the UK.

Jubilee Weekend Activation

For the Jubilee Weekend, operation was on multiple bands and modes by one or more clubs operating from each of the seven nations/dependencies. These were Special Event amateur stations run by teams of club members and several were open to the public – go to GB70.co.uk for full details.

Activation during the rest of June

After the first weekend of June the special call signs were available for activation by RSGB affiliated clubs or individual RSGB members. There were awards available for QSOs with the special call signs.
