Centre - Committee - Convention 

The National Radio Centre

Unfortunately, it will be necessary to close the National Radio Centre for a week, starting on Monday 21 March. Several NRC volunteers have Covid and we don’t have enough available volunteers to welcome the hundreds of people who visit each week. We hope to re-open the Centre on Monday 28 March. Please check the RSGB and NRC websites for updates before travelling.

 

The RSGB Legacy Committee

The RSGB Legacy Fund, thanks to the generosity of donors, has significant financial resources available to encourage and develop amateur radio. The Legacy Committee (a subcommittee of the RSGB Board) considers proposals for grants to be given to projects from the RSGB Legacy Fund. The RSGB is seeking members to join the Legacy Committee, preferably with experience in grant applications or experience within the charitable sector. For more information see the RSGB website: RSGB Legacy Committee volunteer vacancies:

Practical Boat Owner Magazine

Practical Boat Owner magazine this month has an interesting article about the use of amateur radio instead of satellite phones whilst at sea. The article is about Tony Preedy, G3LNP but the RSGB provided general information about amateur radio and how to get involved. You can read the feature in the magazine which is out on newsstands now.
