Urgent. Ofcom proposed changes to your licence.

Ofcom is proposing to make changes to the amateur licence. Some changes are not in our favour so it is important as many people respond as possible.


Ofcom has consulted the RSGB in these matters and counted that as one vote. That is with the weight of all the various committees with different interests within the RSGB.


Below are the links you will need. The first is guidelines from the RSGB, the second is the link to the consultation document.


Please find time to fill in the on line form, it doesn’t take long and this one is important. NB To be submitted to Ofcom by 5pm on 20 October 2014.


Thank you

Club Night 11 November 2014 – Visit to Manx Radio

MRICONI am pleased to announce that we have been given the opportunity to visit Broadcasting House on Douglas Head – home of Manx Radio.

The downside is that we can accomodate up to 20 members, and we must be at the station for 18.00hrs (6pm in old money)

Therefore, this will be first come, first served… if you would like to visit the station and are capable of getting there for the start time then please let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

We will be guided on the tour by MR staff, and I believe there may be a short introductory film to watch prior to the tour.

Contact details:


Phone    211444 (after 6pm please)
