This callsign commemorates the sinking of Royal Mail Ship (RMS) Leinster on 10th October 1918, just one month and one day before the end of World War One.

EI100MCV will be active for the year of 2018, from 1st January 2018 to the 31st December 2018 inclusive, with special attention to dates throughout the year of special significance to this tragedy. However there will be particular activity in the weeks around the date of 10th October 2018. We have also been advised that the Dragon Amateur Radio Club, in Wales, will activate GB100MCV from the 1st October to the 28th October 2018, to commemorate RMS Leinster.

The call sign, which contains the original call sign ‘MCV’ of RMS Leinster, is to mark the Centenary anniversary, on the 10th October 2018, of the sinking of RMS Leinster (of the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company) in the Irish Sea. This was, and still is, the single largest loss of life in the Irish sea with a total of 567 people lost.

The Ship was torpedoed by UB123 just 25 kilometres (16 miles) off the Irish coast. To add to the tragedy, 2 weeks later UB123 was sunk with the loss of all 36 crew, many were very young with the oldest being 27 years old.
