December's Training Workshop Report





December's training workshop went well with the following members attending, 2E0PSN, 2E0JHL, M0BDB, M3ZZN, G7UHE & G4TVP.


The first subject covered was the newly revised call out plan, followed by message handling, correct radio procedures and the use of prowords and phrases.


 The Council message form and Control Station Log sheets were reviewed and Geoff also explained about site surveys and how Essex Raynet would benefit from completing them for our fixed sites.


Members then dispersed to carry out some coverage tests around the Tendring area.


 It was agreed that the January training session would include actual message passing practise, rf coverage prediction and would be held at the Millennium Centre in Great Baddow.

News from the RSGB and RAEN



Towards a new RAYNET: a joint statement by the RSGB and The Radio Amateurs’ Emergency Network


For 60 years, RAYNET groups have been offering the community a unique service — emergency communications independent of infrastructure which is vulnerable to disruption by natural causes or technological failure.


The leadership of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) and the Radio Amateurs’ Emergency Network (RAEN) believe there are considerable benefits to there being one RAYNET organisation. This is also the view of many RAYNET Group members. Not only would it improve service to the community, it would benefit the interests and the image of Amateur Radio as a whole.


The Board of the RSGB and the Committee of Management of RAEN have agreed to the formation of a Joint Working Group to facilitate a closer working relationship between the two organisations. It will also explore ways in which RAYNET could become a single, unified body that would support and co-ordinate the work of all groups and members.
