On the third monday of every month, with a few exceptions (please refer to our calendar below), the Southport & District Amateur Radio Club holds its monthly meeting at St. Marks Church Hall, Scarisbrick, and everyone is welcome to attend.
Meetings normally include a short business meeting (once a quarter) followed by an activity which can be:
- Tea and a natter
- Operate the club HF/VHF radios (weather permitting)
- Visiting speakers
- Surplus sale (usually the December meeting)
- Tutorial sessions on a variety of topics
Over the years we have enjoyed talks by/about:
- North West Air Ambulance
- Liverpool – Holyhead Semaphore Telegraph
- Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI)
- Southport Offshore Rescue Trust
- The ‘bicycle mobile men‘ G4AKC and G7LPW
- Summits on the Air by G0OXV and G0OMG
- History of Radar & Navigation Beams to WW2 by Dave Roberts (GW8NZN)
The monthly meetings are a great opportunity for those new to the hobby to gain some experience operating on the air under the supervision of our Advanced license holders.
If you can deliver a talk or demonstration on a specific topic, or simply want to know what’s going on on a specific day, please contact us.
