Miscellaneous LRS documents

 

The LRS was contacted in March 2019 by Anne Northridge of Edinburgh, the daughter of the late Colonel A. Noel Atkinson, RAMC, of Cultra, County Down, who operated as VU2FA in India prior to WWII. She kindly provided the following information, photographs and QSL card which we hope you find interesting:

Shack of VU2FA in Kasauli, India in 1938

(All that to provide 20W of AM on 20 metres, but capable of working the world with a rhombic antenna)!

This clip from the Glasgow Herald of 9th January 1946 announcing the release of the Amateur Bands for use again after WWII was kindly provided by Bruce McCartney GM4BDJ. 

Certificate of RSGB Affiliation, issued on 11th August 1953, signed by RSGB President Leslie Cooper G5LC.

Thus the LRS has been affiliated to the RSGB for over 60 years, but incomplete records at HQ have resulted in a reluctance by the RSGB to acknowledge this in RadCom.
