Get ready for the Transatlantic Tests

| August 26, 2022

The RSGB is hosting The Transatlantic Centenary Tests on the HF bands, for the entire month of December 2022

This is to commemorate the centenary of the achievement of amateur transatlantic communication, during the tests that were held between 1921 and 1923.

Unlike the tests of the 1920s, which consisted of one-way communication, the 2022 tests will encourage worldwide two-way communication with UK and Crown Dependency-based stations.

For those activating special stations, there will be a series of awards available.

With the assistance of Ofcom, the RSGB has reactivated five callsigns that it held in the 1920s.

These historic callsigns will be activated by RSGB Members and clubs.
