SOS Radio Week
SOS Radio Week is a special event where clubs from all around the country operate from many lifeboat stations to raise money and awareness for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution).
Railways On The Air
Railways on the air takes place every year on the weekend closest to the 27th September. This special event celebrates the anniversary of the first steam powered passenger railway which took place on 27th September 1825. The first passenger train ran on a line in the North East of England from Darlington to Stockton.
Jamboree On The Air
Jamboree On The Air is a great special event. Where hundreds of thousands of scouts and guides around the world and their local amateur radio clubs hold a special event to get as many contacts and also to get more young people interested in the hobby.
