The RSGB National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park will be closed to all visitors between the 14th and 17th of June. This is because ground works are taking place around the building blocking the fire escape. Normal opening hours will be resumed after the work is finished.

The RSGB’s Friendship on the Air Award is a new way of getting on the air, representing your club and having a proper chat with radio amateurs on the airwaves. It is a great way to start chatting to other radio amateurs if you are a new licensee. There are monthly and annual awards for individuals, clubs and the highest-scoring club in each region. If you have taken part already don’t forget to upload your logs. If you would like to get involved for the first time this month, you will find all the details here

The inaugural Gateways On The Air Event takes place between the 12th and the 20th of June. The main aim is to increase communications though linked analogue and digital simplex gateways that are accessible to all licensed amateurs. More details can be found here
