The German town of Bad Bentheim is taking nominations for the Golden Antenna Award. For 50 years, the town has hosted German-Dutch amateur radio days, during which the town stresses the importance of amateur radio as a public service. A committee headed by the mayor of Bad Bentheim will choose the winner. The recipient will be invited to receive the award on 28 August 2021. They would favour candidates who did something special related to the COVID-19 pandemic, but other candidates are welcome. Send nominations via email to

The new IARU Monitoring Service Region 1 Coordinator Gaspar, EA6AMM has appointed Peter, HB9CET, as Vice-Coordinator. Both have been working together in IARUMS for more than a year.

The RSGB will once again be participating in the annual YOTA Month activities in December 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be encouraging large group events. We do hope that smaller groups will be able to participate in the event, while remaining within national and local guidelines. GB20YOTA will be available for Full licence holders to book an appointment slot within a set calendar. This calendar will be available on the GB20YOTA page for you to choose when you want to operate. All operations should be focused with the intention to get young people on the air. To register your interest, or to reserve an operating slot, contact Jamie, M0SDV, via email to
