Aims, Objectives & Rules

The Society has a set of guiding principles to which all members are asked to work towards, in order to help us all on building good relationships and to further our shared enjoyment of a great hobby.

  1. The aims of the society are to foster mutual respect and friendships, as well as promote the enjoyment of amateur radio in and around the Sheffield area.
  2. Membership of the society will be FREE for life with no membership fees.
  3. The society will aim to minimise conflicting with the interests of other local groups, for the full benefit of its membership who wish to enjoy other commitments and interests.
  4. Activities will be based on *self organisation* to enable members to develop and share their own interests.
  5. Any costs from activities for things such as contesting events, affiliations, activities will be covered by those participants and members who mutually agree to contribute financially. There will be no pressure to contribute.
  6. All members have a right to be treated with respect and with dignity, no politics and no baggage.

Members failing to honor this simple code of conduct will be asked to change their ways or leave.
