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.

New Live Status Monitor launched

During SOS Radio Week 2010 we trialled a revolutionary online application for Amateur Radio operators that showed visitors which stations were operating, on what frequencies, what their future operating plans were and their QSL details. It was a great success, so we’ve launched the online software for all members of the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society and participant in SOS Radio Week to use free of charge.

This year’s National Hamfest was a great improvement over last years event – the organisers had pulled out all the stops to make this a truly national affair and very successful it was too. It was also a successful visit for the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society that saw eight new members join.
