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.

LARS to exhibit at Norbreck Rally

The Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society will be exhibiting at the 49th Norbreck Amateur Radio, Electronics and Computing Exhibition in Blackpool on the 10th of April. We will hopefully be situated next to the Snowdonia Radio Company (SRC) stand, one of our major sponsors.

On the stand will be a number of members, but the more the merrier – so if you’re around and can help man the stand please let us know.

During the day we will be making a presentation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) for the amount raised during SOS Radio Week. It would be great if as many participators could attend so that we can get a group photograph. Again, please let us know if you wish to attend for the photograph.

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.
