Club Callsigns

The Society’s main callsigns are:

G8SRS  –  Used mainly for VHF / UHF.

G6UQ  –  Used mainly for contesting, but also by our rally talk-in station in July.

M5MDX  – Used mainly on HF and during our Foundation Licence courses.

G3LX – This was our previous presidents callsign which is now a club callsign after his passing

G50 – Used by Peak Contest Group in HF contests

On the air events from our Walthew House HQ.

Our callsigns can regularly be heard on the air when our HQ station is active and we usually take the opportunity to use the special club callsign by introducing the letter “X” as follows.

GX8SRS  –  VHF / UHF station operating from HQ – mainly used for club nets using FM ./ SSB / CW.

The station will be mainly used for club nets and on the air evenings, and will also be used for club activities and special events by the Society.

The station will be mainly used for club activities, special events and contests where the special callsign does not contravene the rules or spirit of the contest.
