Following an extensive review of the Amateur Radio Observation Service(AROS), the RSGB has decided to create a new service to provide guidance to operators who experience misuse of the amateur bands by others
This service will be known as the Operating Advisory Service (OAS) and will replace AROS. The change will come into effect over the next few months.
A new team of volunteers will promote good practice and take a detailed look at how to tackle problems such as on-air harassment, repeater abuse and the pirating of call signs. They will develop written advice that will be published on the OAS pages on the RSGB website.
