PLEASE READ THROUGH - Change for 2015
**********Please note a major development in 2015.... the Workington Radio Club have now included a FIFTH Lifeboat station for this year... this will be MARYPORT and callsign GB6LBC ....Maryport is a privately run lifeboat and as such is NOT a part of the RNLI itself so will probably NOT qualify under the RNLI award schemes... OUR award is a seperately issued by the combination of FARS and WARC..for this years award we will accept working or hearing 4 out of 5 as a minimum requirement..***************
The RNLI station on Roa Island, off Barrow in Furness, will again be taking part in the RNLI SOS RADIO WEEK for 2015 from 24th - 1st February 2015 (weekends Only) - (2015 QSL above above)
the station has one of the new TAMAR boats named "Grace Dixon" and a D class inflatable "Vision of Tamworth" both visible in the same photograph this time around during a Public Gala day
As you may or may not be aware . the RNLI relies entirely on Public Donations to maintain its operational capability, having spent many years myself on water in the Royal Navy, both surface and submarine vessels, i know, and value, the efforts "above and beyond the call of duty" that this service provide -- the dedication of all involved are a credit to themselves and to the human race as a whole.
the SOS RADIO WEEK is an annual fund raiser -- Please consider donating to such a worthy cause. your local RNLI station or you can donate to me via Paypal to email@example.com from your own paypal accounts, or direct to my home address 5 Seatoller Place, Barrow in Furness, Cumbria LA14 4NH.. Be assured ALL received will go directly into the pot, to be presented to the lifeboat crew itself
GB5LBC is part of FOUR RNLI lifeboat stations,plus the addition of MARYPORT,, in Cumbria during this years event. i will remain qsl manager via the buro...WARC are prepared to take qsls via EQSL this year for all 5 stations. Please consider qsl'ing direct supplying an SASE this will be the quickest means, and the preferred method, any donation can be included and these will go to the RNLI along with those collected locally .
YOUR qsl cards via the bureau, are NOT required.... Unless you state on air that you do NOT require a card - so PLEASE state if you DO NOT require a qsl EQSL will happily be accepted
********a Certificate for working a minimum of 4 out of the 5 Cumbrian boats will again be made available. preferred method is by return of email in JPEG format for you to print yourself... if a printed one is needed there will have to be a charge of $US 2 or 2euros (NO coins please).. contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org with 4 or 5 LBC station contact details so i can confirm... ALL additional monies include will be donated to the RNLI.. I make NO charge for either myself of the local radio club running this event, the charge is for photo sheet and hard backed envelope,and postage (the UK mail service is expensive) ********
Please contact me by email if extra information is needed email@example.com
ANY extra monetary amount sent will be gratefully received and fully donated to the RNLI.. ..
