The Club aims to promote and educate on all aspects of Amateur Radio or Ham Radio if you prefer.  This applies to both newcomers to the hobby and those who have been around a long, long time.

NEW TO AMATEUR RADIO?
If you have an interest in electronics, communications, software or just simply want to chat with others, this hobby has probably something to offer you. Radio Amateurs are experimenting with communications from Long Wave, though the Short Wave bands, VHF and UHF using voice, data and Morse code.  Communication via satellites is common and some Radio Hams are even bouncing signals off the moon!!  

Note that you need an Amateur Radio Licence in order to transmit on approved amateur frequencies.  Click button below for more information.
