Operating Advisory Service

A small radio rig and a dual-band yagiThe Operating Advisory Service (OAS) is a volunteer-run service which provides guidance to licensed radio amateurs in the UK and Crown Dependencies*.

It helps promote good practice, and advises on you how to manage problematic behaviour and poor operating practice on the amateur bands.

Advice is given in two forms—

  • Documentary advice is on the RSGB web site and available to every one
  • RSGB members can also request personal help from the OAS team

The team is led by the OAS Coordinator, supported by a group of Regional Operating Advisors.
