Protect your callsign details from being used for postal adverts!

If you have a new (or old) callsign you may not be aware that the personal details you register with OFCOM are freely available from various databases around the world.

A UK company “UK Amateur Mailing” sells this information so that licence holders can be sent mail shots by companies involved in the hobby.

The Radio Society of Great Britain is a customer of this company and their commercial manager (Mark Allgar M1MPA) advises that RSGB will soon be sending out a mail shot to promote RSGB membership.

It is possible to have your details removed from this mailing list by going to and completing their opt out form. Alternatively ring 07847 118121 and leave your details.
