Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society visits the Stafford & Districts Amateur Radio Society

The Stafford & Districts Amateur Radio Society invited Simon from Snowdonia Radio Company to present a talk on his range of Amateur Radio Antennas last night. Being the Vice-Chairman on the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society, and having SOS Radio Week founder David with him on five weeks work experience, Simon invited Derek to come along too to give a short talk on the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society and SOS Radio Week.

We’d like to thank the Stafford & Districts Amateur Radio Society for a warm welcome and taking an interest in our activities and we look forward to working with you during SOS Radio Week 2012. We’re also very grateful for the donation made which will be presented to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in due course.

If you’d like the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society to come and talk to your club then please contact us now.

Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society visits the Marches Radio Society

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society attended the Marches Radio Society in Chirk last night to introduce the group to the activities of the Society and our annual fund-raising event, SOS Radio Week.

The evening was well attended by Marches RS members during which time they watched a video presentation and listened to both Derek (Chairman) and Simon (Vice Chairman) explain about the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society’s foundation and mission and how they can take part in SOS Radio Week as a club.

David, the founder of SOS Radio Week, was also in attendance and answered some questions from the floor.

We’d like to thank Marches Radio Society for their hospitality, the new members for joining on the evening and the very generous donations made by the members, all of which will go direct to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

M6XJP walks walks across Morecambe Bay for the RNLI

The RNLI Cross Bay Walk, also known as the Morecambe Bay Walk, took place on the 25th June.

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society established a special event station at Holker Hall, the finishing point for the walk, under the callsign GB5RNLI. However, we also, rather fiendishly, thought it would be a good idea to send Chris (M6XJP), our Treasurer, on the walk as our roving reporter. He and his wife bravely tackled the event and here is his story (also have a look at his image gallery) – thanks Chris (and Mrs Chris)… read more
