Radio Officers Association

I just found out about the ROA (Radio Officers Association) and joined. The magazine, QSO, is fascinating, full of interesting articles. The Association is doing a lot of work to preserve records, artifacts etc, and is a great way to track down old buddies etc.

The membership only stands at 310. Surely there must be more of us left than that? I feel that we should support this organisation, because in another 10 to 20 years the RO number base will be very small - we're already mostly pensioners. Is that small number of 310 simply a reflection on the fact that a lot of RO's haven't heard of the ROA, or is it simply not interesting to some?

Can anyone provide details of the R.O.A. and how I join, please? Was an R/O myself with B.P. Tankers, Silver Line, Container Fleets, O.C.L. and eventually P&O.C.L.

Many thanks in anticipation.
