Also in GB2RS this week…

| February 26, 2021

From modest beginnings on the 31st of March 1921, the men and women of the Royal Australian Air Force have served Australia’s national interest. To mark this Centenary, the Wireless Institute of Australia will be celebrating with two callsigns. VI100AF will operate from the 1st of March to the 29th of May. It will be used by radio amateurs that are either current or veteran military personnel; some activities may be from military bases. VK100AF will be active from the 1st of March to the 31st of August. This callsign will be used by a team of over 40 radio amateurs across the bands around Australia. Full QSL information and detail on operations can be found on

The RSGB has launched a new page on its website that includes a video outlining the benefits of Membership. To watch the video and find out more click here

Radio amateurs serving in the Finnish military will be using the prefix OI on Friday the 5th of March. There are only about 35 stations with an OI callsign, so it’s a rare prefix. There is an award available, just search online for OI Award Finland.
