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.
