Also in GB2RS this week…

| December 23, 2022

Season’s greetings to all our listeners! This Sunday’s GB2RS news script will the final one of 2022. This Christmas Day news reading is optional, as the RSGB appreciates that not all newsreaders will be available as normal, but the script is on the RGSB website so all can see it. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the newsreaders—who read the news on a variety of platforms—for their service to their fellow amateurs throughout the year. We’d also like to remind amateurs that there is a long-standing convention to listen for news broadcasts on Sundays before transmitting to allow news reading to go ahead without interference. Thank you to all those who listen on Sunday mornings and the other times that the news is read; to those who call in afterwards to speak to the newsreaders, and to everyone who listens via the various platforms. Please note, there will be no GB2RS script prepared for broadcast on Sunday, 1 January 2023 due to RSGB HQ being closed from 12.30 on Friday, 23 December 2022 until 08.30 on Tuesday,  3 January 2023. Newsreaders may, of course, choose to run a net at their normal transmission time, but under their own callsign only.

The RSGB is releasing three more 2022 Convention videos between Christmas and New Year to give radio amateurs some great content to watch during the festive season. Dr Colin Forsyth from UCL’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory gives a fascinating presentation about Space Weather, whilst Prof Norman Billingham, M0EBI talks about plastics for the radio amateur. Jim Bacon, G3YLA reviews what the 2020s have told us about sporadic E. The presentations will be published on three separate days so if you subscribe to the RSGB YouTube channel you will know when they’re available.
