This was yesterday's big announcement from the RSGB. I was going to write up a piece on what it means for amateur radio clubs going forward, but (and not just because I'm being lazy...) Pete M0PSX from Essex Ham has done an excellent job, and I don't think I could improve on it, so check it out here: https://www.essexham.co.uk/rsgb-removes-practicals.html
