Applications for membership to the club should be made via the IECRO website.
Every few months we run a number of radio theory classes, with a strong emphasis on international best practices in disaster management, specifically aimed at teaching new members how to become skilled licensed operators. In addition to this we also provide some basic training in terms of license-exempt methods such as Citizens Band, and PMR446.
Newly Licensed? In addition to running these above courses, our club has a Technical Panel which can advise newly licensed operators how to setup their home stations and how to operate portable.
