On 6th December, MARS shall be welcoming Jason Bull, M0JPB, the West Midlands Regional Co-ordinator for RAYNET-UK to give a presentation to our group outlining the work that RAYNET-UK does.

Since 1953, RAYNET have been providing emergency communications using volunteer radio amateurs in situations varying from natural disasters and major incidents to safety communications for large-scale community events. If there is sufficient interest and demand, we may consider forming our own RAYNET group in the near future.

All are welcome – members and non-members – and the presentation shall begin at 19:00 on Wednesday 6th December. Non-members are requested to make a small contribution of £2 towards the cost of the facilities.
