Hello Sailor! RNARS 50 years

The Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society is fifty years old this year and to celebrate it has aquired the call sign GB50RNARS, which will be used by its members through out the year.  The call sign may be a bit of a mouthful and not fit into some electronic logs, but it is a nice easy one to remember. So go ahead and say ‘Hello sailor!” on air, but don’t blame me if you receive a broadside in response. I am sure that there will be some nice QSL cards coming the way of those that work the call during the year. I suspect from the ex-RN guys I know that the best chance of a contact will be to dust off the morse key, but with a whole year to catch them hopefully other modes will get an airing too.
