Radio marathon commemorates 75th anniversary of VE Day and VJ Day

| April 27, 2020

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day and VJ Day, the RSGB has organised the VE/VJ Day amateur radio marathon on the HF bands and 6m using SSB, CW and digital modes.

Three special UK call signs GB75PEACE, GB1945PE, GB1945PJ will be on the air from 1-31 May 2020 and 1-31 August 2020.

The special stations have their own pages that give details of the activation schedule. If you wish to participate and transmit using a VE/VJ Day radio marathon call sign, please contact Ian, G0FCT at

Full details of radio marathon and the five awards are on the radio marathon web page 

This is another great initiative that links with our “Get on the air to care” campaign so we encourage radio amateurs to get involved.
