Registration for SOS Radio Week is open

| January 26, 2024

SOS Radio Week is an annual event that takes place throughout the month of May to celebrate the work of the volunteers from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Independent Lifeboats, and National Coastwatch stations around the British Isles.

Members of these organisations save many people who are in danger along and around the thousands of miles of coastline, and further out to sea.

This year is the 200th anniversary of the founding of the RNLI, so SOS Radio Week is being branded SOS Radio Week 200 for those operators who are supporting the RNLI during the event.

Participants can operate from home, a public location, or a lifeboat, or a Coastwatch station with the appropriate authorisation from the station manager.

A commemorative certificate will be available to all official stations that record their contacts on the website, together with awards for the top individual and club or group stations on each band from 160m to 70cm.

Registration for individual and group operators is now open at
