Communication is an everday activity that we are all involved in, be it face-to-face or using some form of electronic device.

Radio communication is used by the vast majority of us, without even realising it some of the time; radio, television and satellite receivers, handheld computers, mobile phones and wireless networking all use some form of radio communication to work.

School and college visits

The Southport & District Amateur Radio Club can visit your school or college and provide your students with a fun-packed day, full of interesting activities that will introduce your students to radio communications, explain how they work and how to use them. Most of the activities are hands-on and suitable for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and Key Stage 3 (KS3) students. We can also tailor our visit to fit in with particular areas of the curriculum that yourstudents are currently studying, or run a National Science & Engineering Week (NSEW) event for you.

If we can help your school or college in any way please contact us now for further information.

Over the years the Southport & District AMateur Radio Club has supported local Scout troops and run six week courses that have enabled members to gain their Communicator Badge, we’ve also taken several a step further to gain their Amateur Radio Foundation Licence.

We can run similar activities for Guide units and other youth groups who would like their members to gain extra skills.
