Jordan's Queen Noor has donated the ham station equipment of her late husband, King Hussein, JY1, to the Radio Society of Great Britain. The king was very active on the ham bands and always introduced himself simply as "Hussein" to ham contacts. 

The ARRL Letter reports that RSGB is preparing a permanent exhibition of the JY1 station at its National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park.
