Also in GB2RS this week…

| September 16, 2016

In preparation for the 2017 IARU Region 1 Conference, the RSGB has updated its consultation forums so that UK amateurs can suggest topics on matters such as HF/VHF operating or technical recommendations, band plans, contests, EMC and amateur radio development. The initial phase is an open call and will be followed by further opportunities as UK papers are developed, or subsequently when all meeting papers are available. There are separate discussion forums covering EMC, HF, VHF/Microwave and more general matters. We would particularly appreciate initial topics by the middle of October, in time for the annual RSGB Spectrum Forum meeting on 29 October 2016. More general help on the RSGB Forums system, including registration, can be found under What is this site and how does it work? If you wish to take part in the consultation go to
