Debby says…Thank you to all those who submitted responses to my request for archiving historical records.
Regrettably no one actually came forward who is able to help coordinate this important task. I perhaps wasn’t too clear, as I am not wishing to be rid of any of the memorabilia or records, however I would be very keen to have someone help me in the process of finding what should be done and where best to house these important documents, plaques and trophies, where the amateur radio fraternity can appreciate them, rather than in boxes here.
While placing all historical records in the ‘cloud’ so it can be viewed online, this takes time and experience. Again if anyone is able to assist with this I would appreciate hearing from you.
I also remind all of you who have yet to pay your 2014 subscription, the rebate period ends at the end of November 2013. If you are unsure whether you have paid, please check your Break In label which shows your membership expiry date.

Talk soon…Debby ZL2DL
2.The International Museums Weekend 2014 Special Event , 27 September – 5 October 2014
For well over a decade now, there has been an extremely popular and extremely well supported annual amateur radio special event, by the name of the International Museums Weekend (IMW). The majority of those taking part in the event have been in the United Kingdom, but with a few radio amateurs taking part from the rest of the world. For the 2014 IMW, the members of the IMW administration team are hoping to make the event a truly in international one, with great deal more participation from beyond the UK's borders.
An Amateur Radio 9-day Special Event Taking Place on the weekend commencing 28th September 2014
The intention of this event will be to help support the many donation funded flying medical services around the world, by operating your special event station during at least some of the 9 days during which the event takes place. Nine days to include two weekends, so everyone can get an opportunity to take part. The primary rule is that no radio amateur should accept any donations, donations and offers of funding should be made directly to which ever service you nominate when you complete the registration form to take part in the event. Registration will be mandatory and all stations taking part will be issued a registration number which will be listed on this website. Included in the list alongside each registered station will be a clickable link enabling those wishing to donate, to donate directly to the charity of the service they wish to support. There have been several similar small local events; this will be an attempt to bring things all together as one big well organised event.
Only donation supported flying medical services are applicable, whether part or entirely donation funded. The location of the special event station will be anywhere you choose to set it up – club, home or if you can manage the permissions to do it, a public place. It might be worth enquiring if you can run it from the actual landing field of the service, but I suspect permission would be refused due to the risk of interference with ATC radio. It is your choice whether you apply for a special event call sign, or simply operate under your own – but as said registration is mandatory. The registration facility will remain open from as soon as the website is formally set up, until the end of the event each year.
The event’s date has been set to coincide with the UK’s own funding drive week for its own helicopter ambulance services. All of these, around 30 in number are entirely public donation funded.
The event is intended to commence on the fourth weekend of September annually and is to be run by the same team which operates the well established International Museum Weekends.
