Members of the Worked All Britain Awards Group and the British Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society will be operating GB0RME from Great Ormes Head on 27 October. Activity will be mostly on 40m and 80m. The WAB square is SH78 and the Lighthouse reference is A5134X. The summit will not be valid for SOTA as this activation does not fulfil their criteria. Full details of GB0RME are on QRZ.com.

The 30m Multi Mode Weekend starts next Saturday. Its stated objective is to promote experimenting and using different digital modes on the 30m band. The organisers are at pains to point out that this is not a contest, although there is an awards programme. More details are online at www.30mdg.net/news.html.

Ham Radio Celebrates Hollywood will be active on 28 October from 1600 to 2000UTC. The station is located on Stage 9 of the CBS Studio Center facility in Studio City, California. Modes in use will include HF, VHF, UHF, D-Star, Echolink and IRLP. A schedule of operating times and frequencies is on www.papasys.com. Operators will blog in real time at www.facebook.com/KA0XTT, and on Twitter as @NN6JA. A special QSL card will be issued to all confirmed contacts.
