About the RSGB – GB2RS news

GB2RS News is the RSGB’s weekly radio broadcast news service. It is broadcast every Sunday on many amateur bands from 160m to microwave frequencies and via the QO-100 amateur satellite.

As well as traditional spoken readings, GB2RS is available via amateur television transmissions and as a podcast.

After many years of negotiations with the Post Office, the RSGB was authorised to broadcast the first news bulletin at 10.00 on Sunday, 25 September 1955. This broadcast was on 3600kHz from the home of Frank Hicks-Arnold, G6MB, in Walton-on-Thames, using the special call sign GB2RS.

The full schedule of GB2RS broadcasts can be downloaded from the RSGB website: rsgb.org/gb2rsschedule
