What's on the mind of a UK ham radio operator?
Wheelchair Radio Hams on Facebook
Are you disabled? Maybe you have to use a wheelchair, maybe you can get around without a wheelchair but still have mobility difficulties. What ever the situation I have created a group on Facebook that is solely for wheelchair and disabled radio hams. I'm not trying to push able-bodied people out, but I think it would be nice if it was just kept for people with disabilities. Even if you haven't got a ham radio licence at the moment, that certainly doesn't mean you are not welcome. It may be a case that you're not sure if you want to go down the route of taking an exam to get your license, still come in and have a chat with the guys, let them tell you their story of how they got into amateur radio and how much it has helped them socialise with other people.
Here's a link where you can check us out on Facebook. I have deliberately left it open so you can see who is a member and what everyone is saying
