    On The 5th of July 2013 marks 100years of RSGB

    You can get a NoV to mark the occasion my going onto the RSGB Website (UK Only i think?) Anyways, you will get an extra 'V' before your number example 'MV6', '2VE0' and 'GV4' Mine is MV6NAV which feel free to check out. The Radio Society of Great Britain has also set out a special callsign running around Britain GB100 so keep your ears out for it on HF, VHF or even (so called dead) UHF.

    On July 5th is the date the NoV starts and ends on July 31st so that gives you plenty of time to have a play with your new callsign. Has any of you already done it? If so just tell us in the replys and then we can try and see if we can hear you?

    Actually the regional designator is replaced by a V wherever there is one present. 2W1xxx becomes 2V1xxx, 2E0xxx becomes 2V0xxx and so on, NOT 2VE0!. Callsigns without the designator i.e. English M and G prefix calls should add the V for example G9xxx becomes GV9xxx but MM7xxx would be altered to MV7xxx.

    UK only.

    Unfortunatley
    your all being led up the RSGB Ltd path of roses.

    `The RSGB Ltd. Didnt come into being untill about the middle of the 1920'S And didnt have a callsign for many years to come.
    However, what you will be celebrating is the 100th year of the London wireless club, Later after a name change,The London wireless society. Members of which at an AGM at the Waldorf hotel in 1922, proposed the setting up of the RSGB.

    `The UK's first National & International radio society was the British Wireless Relay League set up by members of the Manchester wireless society (Establish in 1911 2 FZ). Manchester wireless society had international members just like all the other clubs of the period, Including the London wireless club.

    `Written in the London wireless society journal "Wireless World"
    YWP Evan of 2 Princess road Manchester, was Granted by the post master general a licence for the British Wirless Relay League. And the callsign for the British Wireless Relay League was 2 ZZ

    `The BWRL was set up primarily to take on UK amatuer causes to National & Local government Simlar to the ARRL.

    Interesting and fun; I've enjoyed collecting a few special UK calls, which are nice souvenirs of royal weddings, jubilees, etc. Along these lines, with the centennial of amateur radio occurring in various countries I suggested to the ARRL that for 2014 they apply for "W1ØØAW". They are looking into it, but whether the FCC agrees is anybody's guess.

    Hello... seems there's quite an "excitement" coming on the 5th July 2013 then HI! Just to add though, it makes the hobby worthwhile knowing that you can enjoy a different callsign even if it is for less than a month. Mine will of course be GV0NDV and I look forward to working as many of you as possible, I've even gone the whole Hogg of having 100 QSL cards printed too, and I haven't sent or received those in over 15 years, so it goes to show that you can still enjoy the hobby, leave it for a while and then pick it up again anytime you like.... 73 my friends and good working GV GB100's etc....

    Heh, my "V" NoV will probably end up adding to my collection of NoVs obtained but never used, but I had an enjoyable day using G100RSGB a week or so ago; more QSOs in a day than I usually manage in six months. ;)
