Wider participation in PARC/YHARG events

Many of the UN/ITU/IARU events listed were represented in the UK only by PARC & YHARG.

To our knowledge, no other UK clubs commemorated the Magna Carta or Norman Conquest anniversaries.

Only four UK clubs commemorated a British scientist while the British Scientists Award was being undertaken, but only one of those credited PARC or mentioned the award during their operations.

Local clubs in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire were invited to participate in many PARC events (excluding the GB Special Event Stations), but none accepted the invitations and many did not even reply to the emails.
