Welcome to the Website of RAYNET Pembrokeshire
RAYNET, The Radio Amateurs’ Emergency Network is the UK’s national voluntary communications service provided for the community by licensed radio amateurs.
RAYNET was formed in 1953 following the severe East coast flooding, to provide a way of organising the valuable resource that Amateur Radio is able to provide to the community, this proved vital to the local community when RAYNET assisted the local authority with radio communication between site control and clean up sites around the county after the Sea Empress oil disaster in February 1996.
Since then, it has grown into a very active organisation with around 2000 members, providing communication assistance on many hundreds of events each year. Amateur Radio operators have access to a wide range of radio bands, operating modes and equipment which allows RAYNET to offer a unique range of emergency communication services to our user services. Coupled with our members endless resourcefulness, RAYNET is regarded as a professional support organisation by both the statutory and volunteer emergency service organisations.
