I wish to inform the General Membership of RSSL,that the Annual General Meeting for the year 2018,will be held on 8th July (Sunday), at 10.30AM at the Otter’s Aquatic Club,Colombo-7. The Financial report and the Minutes of the 2017 AGM will be Circulated as soon as it is completed.73!
All are welcome!
IARU has formally invited the RSSL and it’s members to take part in the above contest. The request is below with all the details.
The 2018 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place the second full weekend of July, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday (14-15 July 2018). Both Single and Multi-operator stations may operate the entire 24-hour period.
All licensed amateurs worldwide are eligible to participate in this contest. The objective of this contest is to contact as many other amateurs as possible, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. Multipliers are the total number of ITU zones plus IARU member society HQ stations worked on each band (not mode). Thus, your Society’s HQ stations participation is very important for the multipliers. Last year, we had 11 societies participated in the contest from Region 3, and I hope to hear/work more HQ stations from our region this year.
IARU officials represent a maximum of four multipliers per band (AC, R1, R2 and R3). Our two regional AC members have the option of using “AC” or our regional designator “R3”. Regional EC members who are not AC members must use our designator “R3”.

Happy to inform the RSSL and the membership that the 4S7B HF beacon is back on air after the faulty controller was replaced. Please inform your ham friends to monitor and use it for propagation analysis.
