Special Events News – 21 June 2020

| June 19, 2020

Since the change of regulations applying to special event stations in the UK, many activations are now able to go ahead. UK amateurs would like to thank Ofcom for their help in making this happen.

The 28 June is the centenary of the Royal Corps of Signals. The Royal Signals Museum has a permanent special event call sign, GB100RSM, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions they cannot run the station from the museum. The station will instead run from the home QTH of G3WZP in IO90BR. Activity will be until the end of June on the 40, 20 and 17m bands, using SSB and CW. Skeds are welcome.

Another Royal Corps of Signals centenary station is GB100RS Royal Signals, operating from Bishop Auckland. It will start operating on 28 June. Full details of the centenary stations and their operations can be found at rsars.org.uk/rsars-corps-celebrations-2020.

On 26 June GB1GSW will be on the air to commemorate the railway pioneer George Stevenson—See QRZ.com for the latest information.
