4 Dec 2014 – A Dip Into the Archives

The RSGB holds one hundred year’s of archive materials and Elaine Richards, G4LFM, explained how they are researching and cross referencing them. With assistance from Martin Atherton, G3ZAY, They have photos, documents, notes and QSL cards to sort for cataloguing. Scans and other digital files are being made using industry standards to facilitate access in the future.  It is planned that the files will be made available to members for their own research. With a view to the future, Elaine stressed the importance of members to record their own ‘Living memory’ to be added to the archive.
