Special Interest Groups

Worksop Amateur Radio Society – Special Interest Groups

Amateur radio encompasses such a vast array of interests, from time to time Special Interest Groups are formed.

Currently, at Worksop, we have three such groups.

RPI with TNCPacket Radio

This is a special interest group for Packet Radio and or New Packet Radio. Our aim would be to look at Packet and or New Packet radio within Amateur Radio – using Homebrew or kit based projects. Sharing information or knowledge.

This Group overs both packet radio and New Packet Radio.
