DERBY RAYNET AMATEUR RADIO GROUP
Derby Raynet have been providing communications cover for events and emergency's in all parts of Derbyshire for over 40 years, and has over this time obtained an operating standard for which we are proud and continue to received high praise. Formally known as Derbyshire Raynet which now no longer exists, we renamed when other groups started but these are largely non-existent, our group have continued and remain to be the largest group in Derbyshire and continue to plan for the future.
Throughout this time Derby Raynet have remained an independent group, this has allowed us to progress to cater for changes and not be bound by national restrictions. We are though affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain which is the national organisation that represents all aspects of amateur radio operation in the UK.
We have close involvement with the User Services and are familiar with their working practices. As part of our on-going practice and training exercises, we hold regular events annually along with other organisations and we continue to be booked for these on a yearly basis.
Our increasing membership comes from all parts of Derbyshire this enables us to get assistance in quickly to any area. Unlike smaller groups this way we are not reliant on help from other groups so we can therefore maintain our high standard.
A recent addition is a new bespoke Mobile Control Room purchased specially for this purpose; it is self-contained and able to operate independently and is available 24 hrs a day. It enables us to quickly setup and provide vital communications at the early stages of an incident, and then in a support role thereafter if required.
We are a group that always look forward to a good challenge, and hope to be able to assist you whether in an emergency situation or at events. Derby Raynet have become skilled in providing communication links where others have failed, this is due to us having a wide variety of equipment at our disposal to cater for all eventualities. We are proud that for more than 40 years we have always been able to cope with whatever challenges we have been given and continue to face.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for advice as we have gained planning experience over this time covering many different types of event and situations.
