***  In the present circumstances I would have expected all
rallies in May to be cancelled as a matter of course.

        The organisers won't always inform me of a cancellation - so
please check the rally website, email or telephone the organisers
before setting off for a rally   ***


  Rally organisers seeking publicity in RadCom should write to RSGB HQ
direct giving detailed information including contact callsign and telephone
numbers. Submissions should be marked "Rally News"  Details may be
sent by EMail to: radcom@rsgb.org making sure it is marked: for the Rallies
and Events section.
 
   For publicity in PW, Email don.field@gmail.com

   For publicity in Radio User, Email Georg Wiessala, wiessala@hotmail.com

   
Rally organisers are also asked to send their rally information to me: mail at
g4rga dot org dot uk in order to have the rally publicised here and on the
Southgate and some other sites.


  It would also help rallygoers using navigation  equipment  if the postcode or
grid reference of the venue could be included in the published information.
Feel free to include appropriate social media links to your club/rally.

  Rallies are, traditionally, Sunday events unless otherwise stated.
