It is a sad fact of life these days that there is always somebody that gains some kind of perverse pleasure by destroying other peoples enjoyment of their chosen pastime and it seems that in the world of Amateur Radio, particularly on local repeaters this is the case.
NWARG are taking positive action to try to reduce the problem but to do this we need reports and evidence of the abuse so that we can pursue the cases through Ofcom. (Click here to view the Ofcom guidance on Repeater Abuse)
Please help us with this by reporting any cases of repeater abuse using the form on this webpage.
Of course you can also report any cases of radio spectrum abuse directly to Ofcom by clicking HERE.
