New AROS coordinator wanted

| December 1, 2017

The Amateur Radio Observation Service (AROS) is the RSGB’s confidential advisory and reporting service.

It is intended to assist radio amateurs and others who may be affected by problems which occur within the amateur bands or which develop on other frequencies as a result of amateur transmissions.

The AROS Coordinator runs a team of volunteer observers and liaises with Ofcom’s enforcement team.

They also oversee Intruder Watch, the RSGB’s monitoring system.

The current coordinator, Mark Jones, G0MGX is stepping down from the role after several years’ invaluable service.

The RSGB is looking for a volunteer, who must be an RSGB Member, to fill the vacancy.

The role requires patience and tact, as well as managing the coordination of the team of AROS volunteers.
