As one input to the previous review, a survey of the amateur radio community was undertaken by way of a comprehensive questionnaire, open to all UK radio amateurs.
This data is now five years out of date and we are thus repeating the survey.
The questions asked are largely the same as before, which means that we will be able to see what has changed.
All UK radio amateurs are invited to complete the online questionnaire which is available here.
The survey will be available until 31 December 2015 and an anonymous analysis of the data published on our website with a summary in RadCom sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
The survey is divided into a number of groups of questions.The number of questions varies depending upon your circumstances, but we anticipate that it will take between 10 and 30 minutes to complete.
Note that it takes a few moments for the next group of questions to refresh your browser, so be patient!
During this time the server is checking that you have answered all of the mandatory questions.
If you have missed some you will be routed back in order that you can complete them—the questions that need your attention will be highlighted in red text.
It is recommended that you compose and save any textual answers on a text editor and then copy and paste your answer to the survey.
That way if a mistake occurs or your connection to the survey’s server is interrupted you should still have your textual answers for a subsequent attempt.
