It is with great sadness that we heard that the Radio Society of Great Britain's patron His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, KG, KT, died on Friday, 9 April 2021.
He had been the RSGB’s patron since 1952 and joined the Society on several occasions. These included special event stations, anniversary events and exhibitions.
In 1988, he attended the 75th Anniversary Convention at the NEC. After touring the display of amateur equipment through the ages he exchanged a short greetings message with Windsor Castle. His opening address was included in a special edition of GB2RS that was carried live from the NEC.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s continuing commitment to help young people to develop new skills was demonstrated through the message he sent on the occasion of YOTA 2017:
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome everyone who is participating in The Radio Society of Great Britain’s youth event ‘Youngsters on the Air 2017’. The skills involved in amateur radio are a valuable foundation for careers in science, technology, engineering and maths. I hope that all those taking part in this event will gain valuable experience for their chosen career. I wish all participants a very enjoyable week, and trust that the friendships formed will last long after the conclusion of the camp.”
Our thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen and the whole royal family at this sad time.
RSGB President Dave Wilson, M0OBW

In 2002 an amateur radio station GB50 was established in Windsor Castle to celebrate Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee. HRH Prince Philip visited the station and associated exhibits which included a video of an amateur radio contact between young women at Harrogate Ladies' College and the International Space Station. Some of the students, members of the College's amateur radio society, had travelled to Windsor to be introduced to Prince Philip and told him about their contact with the space station.
