Coronation of King Charles III

| December 23, 2022

The RSGB is making plans to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III and the Queen Consort in May 2023.

The Coronation theme is looking towards the future while being rooted in our traditions, which the Society would like to incorporate in its celebrations.

The UK has an ancient chain of fire-based beacons and the RSGB is considering ways that these might be used in the plans.

As well as organising events for radio amateurs, this is a great opportunity to demonstrate amateur radio to the public and to gain publicity in the media.

If you have any thoughts about how to use the fire beacon chain, or if you have ideas for activities on the Coronation theme that could be used as outreach to the public, please contact RSGB Coronation Lead, Alan Messenger, G0TLK on
