There is now just one week before the Consultation closes on 20 October and Ofcom have advised us that only about 300 people have responded so far.
Ofcom will be relying heavily on the volume and content of the responses as evidence of what the amateur radio community feels about the proposals and it is vital that everyone who has an opinion completes the online form.
Whilst we published some explanatory notes on the website soon after the document was released, it is apparent that many amateurs have not yet read the document which is far from straightforward in several places.
We are thus today publishing further guidance together with suggested responses to the key questions at www.rsgb.org/ocguidance.
Please make sure that you respond to Ofcom, or urge any other amateurs that you are in contact with, to do the same.

The radios will be used on a demonstration Trailer which the club was awarded by the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) back in 2013, then known as GB4FUN The goal is to promote Amateur Radio to a wider audience than just at rallies but to schools and community events. Importantly the unit can be taken to schools and used as a teaching tool to introduce young people to modern radio communication especially satellite .
One off our members puchased a 20 foot twin axle Alco chassis complete with brakes and suspension. This was going to be built up into a fully fitted out contest trailer that can be used during the summer months and of course on our expedition trip to Isle of Arran. Saddly this project will not take place now As that Member as left the Club,Steve still intends to build a Trailer for the members of SARC, He as just built a new Trailer for one of our Members so he can enjoy his contesting with other members of the club , He will be starting work on another trailer to be used in any contests/ events for the members of sarc. we will update our members of the progress of the assembly of the trailer. it was a pitty that we could not have bought this chassis from that member , but their is lots more a round like this !! it will not stop our project from still being built, if there is a need of one for the club. this trailer can be built in house with our members.
FAST DEPLOYMENT TRAILER/MAST
A fast deployment Trailer/Mast will be started in about 2 weeks, this will be fitted with a onboard generator that will run all station and lighting for when the member are on 24hr field day events, this will come in very handy for when some work needs doing at night, as the lighting will be run on a pir system, this will be a more safe for people doing any work at night, the unit will only be eight foot towing length and will extend to 50 feet when in operation, light weight and portable
Learning can be fun and we try hard to maintain the fun aspect of the hobby while we teach the courses...... SARC is responsible for all levels of training if you would like more details please use contact link at top of page .
Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is one of the leading UK clubs that has a fantastic track record of successful training for all levels of license. The trainers are very sympathetic to the individual needs of all training candidates and using a very informal and relaxed approach with the training methods used. Most candidates find it very straightforward to achieve their operating license.Emphasis is placed also on that very special period when a new licensee has achieved his/her License and starts to use the bands for the first time.There is always support available to encourage the new licensee in this sensitive period while he/she builds up the confidence from positive operating time.
We are an official examination center and can provide all of the support necessary for candidates to achieve proficiency.We are very aware of the needs of new operators and provide encouraging support to develop confidence in operating on the modern bands and inspire interest in self improvement.
Sheffield ARC are delighted to hear from the general public or our members in relation to any matter regarding the club, whether it’s about our club nights, training courses, events, general information or any other enquiry!

Hi to all, Talking about contesting, first well done to all our members for their contribution and dedication to their club for taking part in this contest, it’s a disappointment that the club did not do this many years ago, and build up a contest team like we have now, the club does understand that it’s not just contesting that makes a club it’s the people and the camaraderie that is the club and it’s our first priority ,what makes the club what it is today “ a good club for its members “ SARC will be taking part in many more of the Contest through the year , the club is building up a range of equipment up now.
To be used within the club and out on contesting,
Also some of our members have contributed to building a contest unit for everyone to enjoy their hobby, this project as all ready been started and will be completed within the coming month or two this will be a advantage for the club and all its members and it will help our operators to enjoy their contesting for the club. And to extend their skills. The contest unit will be fully fitted and it will be able to cope with the rough terrain that we come across on field days, the trailer will have the club logos and our sponsors’ logos just like the gx3rcm unit this Unit will be used in 2015

PLEASE NOTE: Recent Events which have yet to be sorted out have meant that Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is now using a new club call sign M0RCU. in all of it it's contesting and club activities. This is an excellent opportunity for us to take up a new call sign following our recent overhaul of the club and represents a new beginning for a club dedicated to the present and the future needs of Amateur Radio operators in the Sheffield area.Although still very mindful of the history of over 80 years presence in Sheffield, Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is a forward thinking progessive club with a strong active membership.
.With respect to all of our GX3RCM supporters and sponsors, the GX3RCM call sign will remain for the time being as just the brand name for the promotional work that Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is committed to. The identity of the communications trailer will always be that of the GX3RCM Radio Communications Module as we are legally allowed to. The GX3RCM Trust has been established to develop further our activities in our very positive promotional work not just in Sheffield but Worldwide.
