Links Page

It is impossible to list all the links I have discovered over the past couple years so I have deceided to aim the list at newcomers to the hobby in the hope that they find the information useful. The links are not in any order. If you know of a site that you think should be listed, then please let me know. Thank you
This is the definitive Amateur Radio site. Look up address' for QSL cards. Find out about other operators. Many links to other sites of interest

Worked All Britain
Starting 1st January 2009
There is to be a new look to the system of WAB awards. An opportunity for newcomers to start on an equal footing to lifelong WAB collectors. Give it go. Opportunities for Base operators as well as Mobile and Expedition operators.
This is a group dedicated to working all areas of the United Kingdom.  Based on the Ordanace Survey grid reference system, the awards offer opportunities for mobile and portable operations as well as home based operations. Nets run on a daily basis. New members are always made very welcome and the nets are often very informal unless a mobile is activating areas. The awards are suitable for both experienced and newly licensed operators as well as overseas stations. The group also supports light house and SOTA activators. in other words, all are welcome.

RSGB (Radio Society of Great Britain)
Although there are many other clubs, societies and special interest groups within the hobby the RSGB is the internationally recognised body for British Radio Amateurs. Some love it, some hate it, my opinion for what it is worth, is that we should all join and then if we disagree with something, we put ourselves up for election and change the decision. The other benefits of membership include full use of the QSL Bureau and a monthly magazine Radcom

IOTA (Islands on the Air)

Practical Wireless
This in my opinion is a very useful publication which appeals equally to newcomers and experienced operators and well worth a look

SOTA (Summits on the Air)
I thought I would include this group as there are many younger people joining the hobby. If wandering up hills and mountains is your thing go take a look. Mountain goats welcome!

(British Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society)

European PSK Club

RCQ Communications
Looking for a pre owned radio (thats second hand to us retail dinosaurs) There are many places to go. This is one I can recommend from personal experience.
