Prepare for SOS Radio Week

| March 23, 2018

This year’s SOS Radio Week starts in a little over five weeks’ time.

It runs from 1 to 31 May 2018, in line with the Royal National Lifeboat Institute’s own Mayday fund-raising events.

SOS Radio Week aims to raise awareness of the RNLI through amateur radio and, optionally, raise money.

This can be for a specific lifeboat station, or for the RNLI’s Mayday fund.

This year, the RNLI is hoping to raise £750,000 to fund vital kit that will keep volunteer lifeboat crews safe.

There is an SOS Radio Week award scheme for working registered stations.

Registered stations can be individuals or groups operating on any band or mode.

It’s not too late to register for SOS Radio Week.
