2012 Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society Calendar

Our professionally produced calendar is now available to purchase through our on-line shop. It uses images from members of the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society depicting scenes of various lifeboats, lifeboat stations and LARS events throughout the year.

This is a great momento of the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society’s first year and thoroughly recommended as a great Christmas present.
