RSL = Regional Specific Locator.

It is the M in GM3abc or the W in MW0xyz.

As you know English stations have no RSL, i.e. G3abc

Ofcom had suggested changing the RSL system a few months ago but withdrew the proposal following feedback from the UK amateur radio community.

Then they issues these letters as part of the license update they are doing, but mistakenly included E for England.

This was an administrative error as explained below.

Dear Colleague,

 

As you will be aware, Ofcom are required to give all licenced radio amateurs notice that they intend to vary licences in line with their decisions following last year’s consultation.  That process has now begun and letters are being sent out.

 

It has been brought to our attention that some amateurs have received a letter suggesting that their callsign now includes the RSL “E”.  Ofcom have confirmed that this is an error and not a change in policy.  I am advised that Ofcom intend to publish an explanation on their website (which we will replicate on ours) but, until that appears, I would be grateful if you could reassure any enquirers accordingly.

 

Many thanks
