Hi

 

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 QRZ.com 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 csc.chair<AT>rsgb.org.uk, replacing "<AT>" with "@"

Full details of radio marathon and the five awards are on our website: www.rsgb.org/ve-vj-marathon

This is another great initiative that links with our “Get on the air to care” campaign so do encourage people to get involved. If you wish to tell them about it, please point them to our web page which has all the information they will need, rather than using this email which is for your attention only.

I will be sharing the news over all our usual comms channels over the coming days.

Best wishes

Heather

OK, apologies, cut and paste went a bit awry so let's try that again...
