Serving  the Community  of Wirral
Wirral RAYNET is part of a national network of RAYNET groups around the country whose primary purpose is to provide communications in times of disaster on behalf of the emergency services and other approved users. Since disasters are thankfully rare in the UK, we maintain our skills by providing trained radio operators to enable communications for public events e.g. charity walks, country fairs, sporting events, etc. Most of our members are licenced radio operators, which allows us to use equipment and methods which are not available to non-licenced people. Operators have all gained one or more qualifications in radio technology and operating procedure and our licenses are issued by OFCOM, the UK’s statutory communications and broadcast regulator. We do not charge for our services (this is not allowed under the conditions of our licences) though we do appreciate donations to the organisation. Most equipment used is the personal property of our members who give their time freely. A small amount of equipment is owned by the group and donations allow us to increase our capabilities and provide a better service to the community
