Campbell River is a coastal city in British Columbia on the east coast of Vancouver Island and it needs more radio operators!

When the Internet is down and the telephone network is out of action and you have an emergency in your location - the only way left for reliable communication is the use of Radio.

If only more Governments and Local Authorities would recognise this and support the development of Amateur Radio communication!

Campbell River Authorities have clearly recognised this and now is the call for more people to learn about radio.

Please learn about radio communications 

More action to allow the UK Emergency Services leave TETRA and move onto 4G

It was agreed in 2015 that the UK would move from it's national TETRA service for Emergency and Government Services communications and develop a service using the company EE and it's 4G network.

After years of silence on this issue EE how now requested that OFCOM considers changes to their frequency allocations to accommodate the new service.

The OFCOM consultation document is now available and welcomes comments from spectrum users.
