SOS Radio Week 2023 starts at midnight on the 1 May and concludes at midnight on the 31 May.
It is an opportunity to support the many voluntary organisations in the British Isles whose members volunteer to save the lives of others at risk around the many miles of its coastline, and out at sea. These organisations include the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the National Coastwatch Association and the numerous independent lifeboat and coastal rescue groups.
Individual amateur radio operators and clubs are invited to register to become an official SOS Radio Week station and operate under their own callsign, their club’s or a special event callsign to raise awareness of the great work these volunteers perform.
Awards are available for registered stations that make the most contacts on each of the 160m to 70cm bands and using various modes.
Registration is now open and further details can be found at sosradioweek.org.uk
