SOS Radio Week, what is it?

SOS Radio Week is one month of fun, operating, an opportunity for amateur radio to celebrate the work of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) and to raise much needed awareness and funds for them.

Both of these organisations are funded 100% by voluntary donations.

SOS Radio Week Registered stations

Any licensed Amateur Radio operator, or Amateur Radio club, based within the United Kingdom, Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man can register to run an official SOS Radio Week station. All you need to do is let us know what callsign you will be using during the event, together with your location, and you will become an official Registered SOS Radio Week Station, promoting the work of the RNLI and NCI throughout the event.
