Ofcom consultation Sep 2014

Some of you may have known that Ofcom recently consulted the RSGB on changes to the ham licence and invited comments from licenced hams. The finished consultation response is now published and available from the Ofcom website http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/binaries/consultations/amateur-radio-licence/summary/condoc.pdf.

I would urge all our members to read the document and then go to the Ofcom website where you can enter your views on whether you agree or disagree with the various questions.

This is my hobby and yours, this is your chance to have your say. Don’t lose it!

I will be posting later a potted version of what the document says to try and distill down the salient points.

Committee changes

At the recent AGM there were changes to the committee. Dave M6DPG stood down and Ian M6IDP took his place. Thanks to both of you for your service to your club.

Hopefully 2015 will be an even better year for the club !
