Nick Redmayne, G6PQW has written an engaging piece in The Telegraph this week about how the lockdown has reinvigorated a teenage interest in amateur radio. The piece includes a quote from RSGB General Manager, Steve Thomas, M1ACB.

Unfortunately The Telegraph won’t give us permission to share the full article directly on our website but has highlighted that people are able to read it for free by registering on The Telegraph website.

RSGB GM Steve Thomas said in the article:

“At the beginning of the pandemic, we launched an unprecedented campaign with the NHS called ‘Get on the air to care’. This has provided support for current radio amateurs, inspiration for those who want to return to amateur radio and a new path via remote invigilation exams for over 2,750 to pass their Foundation licence as well as over 1,000 to progress to the Intermediate or Full licences.”
