The organisers hope to attract attendees from across the country. There will be presentations, demonstrations and open discussions. Please contact Ted, G4ELM, via email to to receive a copy of the agenda and to let him know if you plan to attend.

The latest edition of The 5MHz Newsletter is now available for free download (4-page/569KB PDF). This edition features news on the latest 5MHz allocations, a provisional band plan from IARU Region 1 and a cartoon that might bring back a few memories.

The booklet Ethics and Operating Procedures for the Radio Amateur by John, ON4UN and Mark, ON4WW describes the best standards of operating on the amateur bands. Over the last eight years it has been translated into most major languages. The booklet can be found at and on the RSGB website (68-page/3.5MB PDF). The IARU has now become the custodian of the booklet and will adapt and update it to ensure it remains relevant and current.
