How to join the RAIBC, the charity working for radio amateurs with disabilities.

Why join the RAIBC, the charity working for radio amateurs with disabilities?

The RAIBC provides advice to any amateur or shortwave listener with disabilities. We can loan equipment to eligible members, and audio versions of the main radio magazines, including Practical Wireless and Radcom. We also have audio versions of manuals to accessible radio transceivers, and the three license courses. We have regular schedules on VHF and HF throughout the country, and a Yahoo group which is a place to get advice and camaraderie. By joining us you can take advantage of these services and support us in proving such services to others.

If you don’t have a disability please consider joining us. Many of our supporters enjoy our newsletter and often assist members. We frequently need help in collecting equipment donations and assisting members with disabilities.

RAIBC cannot erect antennas or offer an installation service, but is very keen to put members in contact with local support.

If you would like to join RAIBC or renew your subscription via PayPal or by a Standing Order, we would ask you to firstly contact our membership secretary before making your payment. The membership form can be found in the “Related Downloads” box to the right of this page.

If you are renewing your membership by cheque, Please DON’T send it to the old address in Guernsey.*
