Voting opens for the RSGB 2019 AGM on 13 March 2019. Members will find the Resolutions and other details in the April issue of RadCom and, after 13 March 2019, at The 2019 RSGB AGM takes place in Birmingham on Saturday, 27 April 2019.

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) US team will offer two very unusual items in its first-ever auction. JVC Kenwood generously gave a brand new TS-890S, signed by astronauts, and the ARRL donated the limited edition 2019 ARRL Handbook for Radio Communications box set, again signed by astronauts. Bidding starts on 8t April 2019 at 1200UTC and ends on 14 April 2019 at 2200UTC. More auction details will be posted at

Finally, it is with great sadness that we learned this week of the death of Jim Stevenson, G0EJQ. He was RSGB Region 13 Representative. He passed away unexpectedly on Monday, 4 March 2019. An incredibly enthusiastic amateur and an unique, irrepressible character, Jim will be missed by a large number of people both inside and beyond his region. An obituary for Jim appears on page 95 of the April RadCom, which will begin arriving on Wednesday this week.
