UK Radio Amateurs Special Callsigns

    The Radio Society of Great Britain and Ofcom have reached agreement on the optional use of special callsigns for two significant events during 2012.

    For the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, all UK amateur stations will have the option of applying for a variation to their licence if they wish, to use a special prefix for a five week period. This will add or substitute the letter “Q” in the place of the Regional identifier in the callsign.

    For the period of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, a similar facility will exist for a seven week period, using the letter “O”.

    • Special prefix to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee: Period: 00.00 BST 5th May 2012 to 23.59 BST 10th June 2012
    • Special prefix to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games: Period: 00.00 BST 21st July 2012 to 23.59 BST 9th September 2012
