Major Amateur Radio Survey Launched by RSGB
At the National Hamfest in Newark over the weekend 1 and 2 October, the Radio Society of Great Britain will launch a major survey of all UK radio amateurs. The objective of the survey is to gather as much information as possible on 21st century amateur radio operation in the UK. The survey, which is internet based, will run for three months and the data collected will be used to determine the direction that amateur radio takes over the next 10 to 20 years. Full details of the survey will shortly appear in all elements of the amateur radio press, notices of invitation will be placed on all amateur radio reflectors and the RSGB website. If you want your opinions to be noted, please take part.
2010 Oceania DX Contest
A reminder that the 2010 Oceania DX contest will liven up the HF bands over the next two weekends. The aim of the contest is to promote HF contacts with stations in the Oceania region. We are expecting a good turn out from VK, ZL and YB stations, as well as stations from some of the rarer South Pacific entities. Note that Oceania stations can work other Oceania and non-Oceania stations. Non-Oceania stations can only work Oceania stations. http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com/rules.pdf 73 and we look forward to seeing you in the pile ups!
