Ham Gear Nicked? There is an app for that

In August last year I told you about Hugh Golding G7UOD and online rig register called, Rigregister Online The idea is you keep an online list of all your equipment’s serial numbers and then if they get stolen you can flag it so a buyer will be alerted if someone tries to sell it. Hugh recently contacted me to say the the site is going strong and has a few thousand users now and their listed equipment. There also is a Smart Phone / PDA search tool for checking serials too so you can check out any gear you are buying in the field at rallies, junksales or on a sellers doorstep. Check it out.

Note: If you discover a piece of equipment that is lost or stolen you should notify the police. DO NOT confront the person offering you the equipment ! Give the police the details and tell them the equipment is registered on The Rig Register. Information regarding the owner and contact details can be obtained by them.
