New apps for Nokia mobiles announced

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society has announced that it has built two new applications for members and followers.

The free applications have been designed for Nokia mobile phones running the S60 and ^3 operating systems and will deliver the latest news from the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society and SOS RadioWeek web sites direct to your mobile phone.

You can download the applications by searching for ‘Lifeboat’ in the OVI Store application on your mobile phone, or the OVI Stor web site. Please note that if you use the web site you must set your mobile phone type to ensure that you send the correct application to your phone.

The S60 version of the apps are suitable for older Nokia smartphones, such as the E71, whilst the ^3 versions are designed to work on the latest range of Nokia smartphones.

New Amazon shop launched

A few weeks ago we launched our own LARS shop containing Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society and SOS Radio Week branded clothing and items from the RNLI merchandising catalog.

We are now pleased to announce the launch of our Amazon shop. We have selected a range of lifeboat and Amateur Radio related range of books, videos, clothing (general Amateur Radio related – LARS and SOS Radio Week branded clothing is available from our own LARS shop), electronics and miscellaneous items from the vast Amazon catalog and placed them here on our web site.

All products ordered through our Amazon shop will not cost you a penny more than if you’d bought them through Amazon.co.uk, but they will earn us referral fees of at least 5% on each sale. All money received from our Amazon shop will go towards the running of the society.
