Membership of RAYNET is open to anyone over the age of 14 with an interest in emergency and community communications. 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 callsign) is not a bar to operating in a RAYNET environment.
Membership of the group is open to anyone with an interest in emergency and community communications whether a licensed Radio Amateur or a radio listener. The Eastbourne & Wealden RAYNET Group in conjunction with the Southdown Amateur Radio Society can provide instruction and assistance with the Foundation Licence.
