The Club

The Warrington Amateur Radio Club is one of the oldest established in the North West and has been meeting regularly since 1947. The main club night is held on Tuesday evenings 8pm – 9.30pm.

We offer technical talks and demonstrations on a wide range of radio related subjects. The club also operates its own station on-site. The club is open on Thursday mornings from 9:30am to noon, for a more relaxed and informal meeting. Technical and Construction activities take place on Sunday afternoons from 12.30pm.

The Club has over 50 members and is affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB). Several members are involved in training courses for people wanting to take up the hobby and obtain a radio amateurs licence.

Currently during the Covid19 restrictions we are continuing to guide members through their exams using online training courses supplemented by help from members and online invigilated exams.

There is a broad technical knowledge base within the membership and assistance and advice for newcomers is readily offered. Facilities available include an amateur radio station, test equipment and an extensive technical library.

The club is located in a convenient location near to Warrington and the motorway network and is completely accessible to wheelchair users and others with disabilities. We have the privilege of being part of the Grappenhall Community Centre and are able to take full advantage of their facilities.

Club members have access to the latest Amateur radio equipment on-site and are able to fully utilise the clubs resources. As a club we encourage our members to exploit and experiment with the latest technologies available to the amateur radio community and we will, funds permitting acquire the knowledge and equipment to further the hobby and its enjoyment in full.
