Amateur Radio & Other Pages

Amateur radio is a hobby that it allows you to develop and experiment with radio equipment; for some amateurs, building equipment is the most satisfying part of the hobby. It also enables you to communicate with other radio amateurs throughout the world. Most countries allow amateur radio operation.

The amateur radio pages can be accessed from the menu on the left, and cover all aspects of the hobby. There is also a massive list of useful links and clubs, and a beginner's guide.

The rally page now has postcodes for GPS users!
