3 Nov. 2016 - A visit by the RSGB General Manager

Appointed in early 2016, Steve Thomas, M1ACB took on the position of
General Manager of the RSGB.¬* He explained he was first licensed in 1999
and volunteered for the post of Deputy Regional Manager for Suffolk in
2008.¬* In 2009 he became the Regional Manager for East & East Anglia. He
stressed he believes in radio clubs and societies and seeks to support them.

Steve went on to explain the many duties of the RSGB, not all of which
readily spring to mind. ¬*He also pointed out that there were only 15 paid
workers at the HQ but the society relies on a further 1000 volunteers to
get things done. The statistics for Foundation, Intermediate and Advance
licenses were discussed and it was encouraging to see that almost half of
those holding Foundation licenses advance to Intermediate. The trend from
Intermediate to Advanced is also up. A total of 2861 exams were taken in
2015 with a high pass rate.

Also showing improvement is the number of visitors to the RSGB website, the
number of visits this month being 31,300.

After a short Q&A, Steve went on to tell of the success of the schools
programme to make contact with the International Space Station. Ten schools
took part and numerous students began by earning their Foundation License.¬*
There was extensive coverage by the BBC, Sky and other news agencies which
resulted in the Sandringham School having a total of 16 million TV viewers
during their QSO with Tim Peake on the ISS.

So what's new, then?

The historic progression rate always was pretty low, with three-quarters
never progressing to Full. No wonder the M0 series is well on course to
be the longest on issue.
