Hello and Welcome!
Welcome to the home page of South East Wales' premiere' amateur radio society, the Cwmbran and District Amateur Radio Society. Amateur radio is a fascinating hobby covering a wide range of activities including amateur television, digital communications, electronics construction, radio transceivers, satellites and many other possibilities. Whatever you choose to do, amateur radio can be fun and educational at the same time.
CLUB NIGHTS are every Wednesday at the Henllys Village Hall, Cwmbran, between 7pm and 9pm. We also participate in a number of external events during the year. See 'News and Events' for more information. Visitors are always welcome!
MEMBERSHIP fees are currently only £15 per year and £2.00 per night entrance fee. Junior members under the age of 18 are exempt from membership fees and raffle and only pay £1 per week entrance fee whilst attending the club. This £2.00 also gets you all the tea and coffee you can drink and a free ticket for the weekly raffle. A selection of soft drinks are also available for sale at a price of 50 pence per can.
GB3RT REPEATER - The club has it's own analogue repeater which is now linked to echolink (Currently under maintainence) and covers analogue and C4FM digital signals. Thanks to all who have got it running Ashley Gareth and the others who helped us test it. At present, this is setup for analogue only, with digital coming at a later date. Have a look at the GB3RT Repeater page for more info on frequencies and on how you can help support your local club repeater in the Cwmbran area.
