The next edition of RadCom Basics is now available. It includes articles on Using a Multimeter – both digital and analogue, tracking down sources of interference and part two of Making Small Metal Boxes. RSGB Members can read previous editions of RadCom Basics by going to rsgb.org/radcom-basics. You can also register to receive notification of subsequent issues as they become available at the same address.



The RSGB is holding its AGM online this year on Saturday the 24th of April and will livestream the event. You can submit written questions for Board Directors in advance through a form on the Society’s website at rsgb.services/gb2rs/007. After the formal business part of the meeting, EMC Chair John Rogers, M0JAV will give an update on Ofcom’s new EMF regulations.


The RSGB remote invigilation exams have been a great success during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Society can now plan to resume exams for candidates who prefer to sit them in a club setting with in-person invigilation. The RSGB will start accepting bookings from club Examination Secretaries from the date when the Government lifts all Covid-19 restrictions in their part of the UK. The Society will release further details shortly. The online remote invigilation exams will continue in parallel. Mandatory practical assessments at Foundation level will remain suspended pending an ESC/ESRG-led review and consultation on their long-term future.

The RSGB National Radio Centre (NRC) showed support for World Amateur Radio Day on Sunday 18 April.

GB3RS was activated by Stefano, G7RDX who is an NRC Volunteer. Using the FT5000 with a doublet antenna, Stefano made many QSOs on both the 80m and 40m bands.

The NRC Co-ordinator Martyn Baker, G0GMB supported Stefano and ensured social distancing and Covid precautions were maintained at all times.

Please note:

The NRC remains closed at the present time and we are reviewing the potential of reopening when government restrictions permit. Please keep an eye on the RSGB/NRC website for any announcements.

At the RSGB AGM held on Saturday, April 24, the Society awarded the Louis Varney Cup for advances in space communications to Dave Crump G8GKQ

Dave accepts this award as Chair of the British Amateur Television Club. His leadership of the BATC community, both in the UK and overseas, has been instrumental in enabling the QO100 satellite wideband transponder to be fully utilized with many new DATV systems being developed since the launch of the spacecraft.

This award acknowledges the exciting and significant contributions made by many members of the BATC, both in terms of software and hardware.

RSGB launches new video: 2020 – a year like no other
2020 was a 'year like no other' for everyone around the world. In the UK, the Radio Society of Great Britain and radio amateurs rose to the challenge.

The Society has launched a new video that looks back at the many fantastic activities and resources that helped to support radio amateurs through these difficult times.

It also shows how existing radio amateurs ‘got on the air to care’ across the UK and thousands of people of all ages got involved in amateur radio for the first time.

Take a look: www.youtube.com/theRSGB

Bletchley Park plans to re-open on Monday the 17th of May. Entry is only by pre-booked ticket, available via their website. The RSGB National Radio Centre remains closed for the time being. Please monitor the RSGB news feed and social media for any announcements regarding reopening.



Don’t forget the next Tonight @ 8 live webinar this Monday, the 17th of May. Bob, G3ORY will help you to Discover more about Amateur Radio Direction Finding. This webinar will include contributions from Kim Taylor, who gives the perspective of a regular Club member being talked into trying ARDF. You will also hear from 14-year-old Flora Jolly who was persuaded to go out and try ARDF with her Dad, David. With Covid restrictions lifting this is a great time to get out and enjoy ARDF. For more information about this and other webinars, see rsgb.org/webinars.



The latest issue of RadCom Plus will be available to RSGB Members on Wednesday. It will be followed later in the week by the newest RadCom Basics. RadCom Plus is the RSGB’s digital technical supplement and is edited by Peter, G3XJE. This issue includes driving relays over a network, an automation system for the WSPRLite, an article on Sporadic-E, a transceiver control system and a Wireless Temperature Sensor.

RSGB National Radio Centre re-opens
The NRC will re-open on Friday 28 May and be open each day, other than Wednesdays, until further notice.
The RSGB is delighted to support Bletchley Park as it welcomes visitors again.

Visitor and volunteer safety is the priority. Whilst the radio room will be open for the demonstration of amateur radio, visitors won’t be allowed inside the radio room and only NRC volunteers will be permitted to operate the GB3RS station.

The RSGB also reserves the right to close the National Radio Centre at short notice should the Covid situation change so do check its website before travelling.

Unfortunately, the NRC will be closed completely from Monday 14 – Thursday 17 June inclusive whilst ground works are carried out in the immediate vicinity of the Centre.

Visitors to Bletchley Park need to pre-book and pay via their website so the Society is unable to offer its free entry voucher to RSGB members whilst that system is in place.

The RSGB looks forward to welcoming visitors to the National Radio Centre again.

RSGB GB2RS video
The RSGB has released a video about the GB2RS news service which is broadcast in many amateur bands and even via the QO-100 geostationary satellite transponder

The YouTube description says:

GB2RS News is the RSGB’s weekly radio broadcast news service. It is broadcast every Sunday on many amateur bands from 160m to microwave frequencies and via the QO-100 amateur satellite.

As well as traditional spoken readings, GB2RS is available via amateur television transmissions and as a podcast.

After many years of negotiations with the Post Office, the RSGB was authorised to broadcast the first news bulletin at 10.00 on Sunday, 25 September 1955. This broadcast was on 3600kHz from the home of Frank Hicks-Arnold, G6MB, in Walton-on-Thames, using the special call sign GB2RS.

The full schedule of GB2RS broadcasts can be downloaded from the RSGB website: https://rsgb.org/gb2rsschedule

You will also find information about GB2RS on qrz.com

The Ofcom Notice of Variation (NoV) document for GB2RS was released in 2017 in response to a Freedom of Information (FoI) request, see
