On the 11th and 12th, for 48 hours, Hucknall Rolls-Royce Amateur Radio Club is running a special event station celebrating the centenary of the Eagle aero engine, which entered service in the Great War 1914-1918. Up to four stations will be on the air, comprising two HF stations, one HF data station and a VHF station.

On 12 October from 10.30am to 4pm, Cray Valley RS will be at Crossness Museum, Belvedere Road, Abbey Wood, London SE2 9AQ with the GB2CM exhibition stand. It will feature how to get started in amateur radio and the support offered by Cray Valley in providing licence training courses and guidance for newcomers. As the open day theme is local history, the stand will also feature some local history connections with radio by including a small display of memorabilia from KW Electronics, K-B and Burndept-Vidor, companies all located only a few miles from the museum site.

II4CDN will be on the air until 31 December from time to time, with different operators, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the radio telescope Croce Del Nord. QSL via the bureau or direct to the QSL manager IZ4FUE.
