Earlier this year, representatives of some radio amateurs in Cornwall, UK approached Ofcom (The UK government dept regulating the radio spectrum) to request temporary use of the Regional Secondary Locator “K” for Kernow, the Cornish word for Cornwall, following the recognition of the Cornish People under the Framework Convention on National Minorities. Ofcom has agreed to this request and will permit amateurs with a main station address in Cornwall use of the RSL “K” throughout 2016. An example may be GK0XXX or MK0ABC.

This activity is being introduced into the EuCW calendar for 2014. It will begin on 1. April 2014 and run through until 31. March 2015. The goal of this activity is to promote the use of CW on the CW-portions of the amateur radio bands, and above all to stimulate operators to establish contacts with counterparts equally divided over Europe. Points may be earned by participants based on locator squares, reflecting their efforts to spread their CW activity over Europe.
