The Russian National Society, RRC, has organised an amateur radio marathon to commemorate the FIFA World Cup finals.

It runs from 1 June to 15 July 2018.

Five awards are available, some of which are achievable at several different levels.

Most bands from Top Band to 70cm can be used, on all modes.

A full list of participating stations, and details on how to apply for the awards, can be found at

The UK is participating with special event stations in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales at various times throughout the event.

Look out for GB18FWC, MB18FIFA, GB18FIFA and, first, GB18FWC, which kicks things off this Monday from the RSGB’s National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park.

In addition, G6XX, GI6XX, GM6XX and GW6XX will be activated to represent the FIFA member countries.

Any RSGB Member who holds a Full UK Licence and would be interested in activating one of those G6 call signs can email for more information.
