On Thursday the 11th of May, the Polish Government published a Gazette notice amending regulations in the National Frequency Allocation Table. Polish amateurs are now permitted access to the WRC-15 60m amateur secondary allocation of 5351.5 to 5366.5kHz under ITU Footnote 5.133B – ie with 15W EIRP. They also now have access from 70.0 to 7.30MHz on a Secondary basis with 20W EIRP. According to the Gazette notice, these regulations come into force 14 days following its publication, so we should expect to be hearing Polish stations on the band soon.

Following the co-option of the current Chair, Philip Willis, M0PHI to the RSGB Board, applications are invited for the role of Chair of TEC, the RSGB Training and Education Committee. The Committee covers most aspects of radio-related training, other than those within the remit of the Examinations Standard Committee. Its interests range from encouraging new entrants into the amateur service, training trainers, syllabus review and roll-out, helping disabled amateurs and working with schools. Full details of the Committee, current projects and members may be found at Applications by CV should be sent by email to RSGB General Manager, Steve Thomas, M1ACB, via email to to arrive by the 1st of July.
