RSGB Centenary

It's fashionable for British hams to knock the RSGB. But I have never been much influenced by fashion.

The RSGB will be 100 years old in 2013. No doubt there will be all sorts of celebrations, a special event station and so on.

To mark the occasion I will display the RSGB centenary badge on my blog and my website until the end of 2013. I think it would be a good idea if more RSGB members who have blogs and web pages did the same.

Here is a snippet of code to make it easy for you to add this to your website:
It's an image not text so you can't cut and paste it - Blogger kept interpreting it as HTML code so this was the only way I could find to include it!

Hi Julian,

The ARRL's Centennial Celebration is the following year - 2014, if I have my facts straight.

I'm sure the amount of carping about the RSGB is equalled by the amount of carping about the ARRL.

Good idea Julian, I'll plonk that on mine.

The Workington lot are kicking off the new year with the special event station GB100RSGB (I think the callsign isn't fixed yet) which will pass around the country from week to week.

We will be running it for the first weekend in January from the Lifeboat station in Workington.

Great idea, added to the blog parts of the website.
