Also in GB2RS this week…

| December 2, 2022

The RSGB’s final Tonight @ 8 webinar of 2022 is on Monday, 5 December 2022. David Palmer, G7URP will explore 100 years of BBC technology and innovation. You can watch the presentation and ask questions live on the RSGB YouTube channel or via BATC. There is more information about the presentation, and how to take part, on the RSGB website.

The RSGB has released two further RSGB 2022 Convention presentations this week, the first of which wasn’t part of the Convention livestream so is brand new to people watching online. Werner Hasemann, DJ9KH explains the preparations and realisation of a low-budget DXpedition in his presentation Z66DX, Activating Kosovo Under Special Circumstances. The second presentation is called Digital ATV, Opening New Horizons in which Dave Crump, G8GKQ describes how easy it is for the home constructor to transmit and receive digital ATV without the need for the specialist camera or receiving equipment that used to be required. These and other presentations are in the RSGB 2022 Convention playlist on the RSGB YouTube channel.

There are two big events taking place during December. YOTA Month encourages youngsters to get on the air and the RSGB has supported this for many years. The special callsign GB22YOTA is being hosted by schools, clubs and individuals so listen out for it on the air and have a chat to the young operators. The RSGB’s Transatlantic Centenary Tests also run throughout December and there are awards available for working the special stations. There are still opportunities to get involved in both events so go to the RSGB website at to find out how to host the YOTA callsign or check out to book an operating slot for the Transatlantic Tests.
