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”.

The RSSL is very grateful and thankful to the Geneva Radio Amateur Association for the donation of the 4 cavity PRO COM Duplexer. This donation comes at a time when the RSSL is considering replacing aging duplexer’s and we consider our selves very fortunate to receive this gift at this point of time. We plan to install this in Piduruthalaga mountain top which is in the central hills and is the highest mountain top in Sri Lanka to improve the VHF repeater performance which is already installed in that location.
I want to thank Hippolyte Tournier president L’ASSOCIATION GENEVOISE DE RADIOAMATEURS and our RSSL member Mr. Senarath Wickramasingha 4s6WAS for taking the interest in initiating this request.
We appreciate your support for Amateur Radio in Sri Lanka and hope you will continue to help us in the future as well.
