Joining a RAYNET group
Individuals join a RAYNET group, which is an autonomous body governed
by its own members. Many Groups choose to take advantage of the extensive
range of services provided by RAYNET-UK. This is
done by the group registering its members with RAYNET-UK.
Membership of RAYNET is open to anyone over the age of 14 with an
interest in the aims of the organisation. It does not matter if you
hold an Amateur Radio licence or not as there are many disciplines
involved in RAYNET work. All classes of Amateur licence are welcome
and a foundation licence (M3/M6 callsigns) is not a bar to operating in
a RAYNET environment.

contact with the most appropriate group.

a new group.
RAYNET-UK is fully aware of the challenges associated in starting a RAYNET
group and will be pleased to put you in touch with people who have had
considerable experience in developing and managing RAYNET groups.
