RSGB Coronation activities

| April 21, 2023

The RSGB is delighted that Ofcom has confirmed that the callsign GB23C can be used for the RSGB’s Coronation Special Special Event Station.

Cray Valley Radio Society members led by Bob, M0MCV and Dave, G4BUO are organising the flagship amateur radio station that will use this callsign from 3 to 8 May 2023.

The Special Special Event Station will be in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, along the riverside in Greenwich.

From 10 May 2023 onwards, the callsign will be available for individuals and clubs to use until the end of June 2023, and further details about this will be announced shortly.

Ofcom has also kindly agreed to a block of 676 Special Special Event Station callsigns for the RSGB’s Beaconnect activity for the Coronation.

These are GB23BAA to BZZ, which will be available throughout May and June 2023.

More details on how to obtain one of these will be given next week, but meanwhile you may wish to find a beacon site you could activate one or more times for this event.

Finally, if you are planning outreach activities with local clubs and groups, take a look at the paper circuit template the RSGB has just shared on its website—go to our Coronation activity ideas page to find out more.
