new year - new friends - on socialhams

To promote our community we have decided to start a referrals program. The goal is to invite as many amateur radio operators and SWL as possible to give the member base a huge boost. Because, the more members the community has the more interesting content is generated.



  • invite at least 3 friends that join the community and get an exclusive socialhams email address such as
  • as a bonus we give away a Baofeng GT-3 Mark II for one of the 10 top most inviters who eventually will take part in a raffle



It is essential that invitations are sent by the referral function on the website and only ham radio operators and SWL are permitted as recipients. Only those invitations that lead to a registration via the referral link will be taken into consideration. The program starts on 2014/12/01 and runs until 2015/01/31. Within two weeks after due date the results of the program as well as the winner of the raffle will be published on the website.
