We would like to meet you if you have an interest in Radio. It does not matter if you just want to find out more or have been a listener or have used radio before in any form. The club meets every Thursday at the Novers Park Community Centre from about 19:30hrs local time with events starting around 20:00hrs.

See the ‘Find Us‘ page which provides maps and written directions for all modes of travel. Finish time for meetings is variable but formal events, including training sessions, usually complete by 22:00hrs local.
