Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) June 2014 Meeting Notes

The RSGB and Ofcom have released the notes of there meeting helpd on 12 June 2014.


One of the issues raised was the allocation of a K-Regional Secondary Locator for Cornwall (Kernow)

Many areas have their own Regional Secondary Locator (RSL) codes to create distinctive prefixes – eg D = Isle of Man

The Shetland Islands (Zetland) uses Z character, but only for Amateur / Ham Radio Contest Stations but not for normal stations. Working stations with such callsigns seems to be popular with Prefix collectors.

The Poldhu Amateur Radio Club have submitted a proposal to Ofcom to introduce K as an optional RSL for amateur stations operating from Cornwall. Ofcom have said they will respond in due course.
