RSGB on the move

After twenty five years at Potters Bar, the RSGB is moving its headquarters to Bedford. Modern IT technology and business practice, mean that Lambda House is no longer cost effective to run as an HQ and due to the age of the building it is proving increasingly costly to maintain. The move which the Society hopes to complete by March 2008 will also involve a relocation of the museum, shack and library. Discussions are taking place with the Bletchley Park Trust, the aim being to establish a heritage centre dedicated to Amateur Radio and the RSGB at Bletchley Park. The Society is in the process of purchasing a modern office building located on the Priory Park, Business Park on the eastern side of Bedford. This will house the admin operation.

It is envisaged that the Bletchley Park site will be the centre of the Society’s training activities and will also be the home of the RSGB HQ station GB3RS which it is hoped will be on the air daily. A fuller statement will appear, on the RSGB website and RadCom shortly.
