ALL RAYNET GROUPS OPERATE UNDER THE AMATEUR RADIO LICENCE ISSUED BY OFCOM WHICH ONLY ALLOWS US TO OPERATE FOR A 'USER SERVICE'

South Kent Raynet will respond to requests from a 'user service' to provide Emergency Communications in live call out situations and also at local events.

The following user services are currently recognised by South Kent Raynet.

  • Kent County Council - KVSEG (Kent Voluntary Service Emergency Group)

Acting as unpaid volunteers we pride ourselves on our standard of communications which have proved successful for the local community where some means of communication have failed or are not effective.
