Amateur Radio Society

The beginning of St Dunstan's Amateur Radio Society 

Amateur Radio Society

The first meeting of the St Dunstan's Amateur Radio Society took place in March 1976 and the purpose was to draw up articles of association, elect officers for the coming year and launch the society.

Eight qualified amateurs and six wave listeners attended the meeting which also included an informative and enlightening talk from R.L.A Borrow G3ZTK about the technique of dealing with aerials. The equipment used was the Swan S200 Transceiver which was lent to the charity by the Radio Shack Ltd.

The society continued to grow and Lord Fraser, Blind Veterans UK Chairman between 1921 and 1974, was later elected President of the amateurs association, the Radio Society of Great Britain.
