Important notice for all guests:

Guests are now allowed to view the forum, but they won't be able to post anywhere or upload any photos and can't vote in any of the polls. So please register first by clicking on the 'I Want To Register' button on the top left of this page.

After you register as a member, you need to make at least ONE post in the 'Introduce Yourself Here' section before you then get full member access. Those who register an account but fail to post at least once within a month will get a reminder or two then have their account deleted. The more you post new topics (or reply to others), the more valued you are as a member of the forum and the higher your 'rank' will get.

It's going to be a great place for people of all ages to talk about amateur radio (amongst other stuff), whether they are licenced radio amateurs or not. Everyone's welcome! You can use the text links at the top of every page to go back 1 or 2 pages or even go back to the board index (starting page) by clicking the ARF logo on the top of the forum. Simply click a 'New Topic' button to start a discussion in any of the sections. If you require any help, look at the FAQ (above) or ask your question in the 'Help!' section. If you don't see a subject on the forum that you think should be here, or if you can think of anything else to improve it, just let us know in the 'suggestions' section. Thanks.

We need YOUR help!! This is a new forum, and we want to build up a larger membership. So, please tell as many people as you know about it. We are working hard for you to make this the biggest and best place for radio amateurs (and SWL's) to hang out and help each other, and with your help we can do it!

We hope to bring a lot more content to the forum in the future, like quizzes, competitions, a special members only area and much more. Maybe one day even a ARF 'net' on air! It all depends on the input of all the members, so bring all your mates along and get them involved too.

Thank You.
