Club History

The Society is one of the oldest amateur radio societies in the UK. Originally meeting in the 1930s at the Tumble Down Dick pub in Farnborough. From 1965 we met at the Railway Enthusiasts Clubroom before moving to Farnborough Community Centre. In 2019 following the closure of the Community Centre we moved to our current location at the Aldershot Military Museum.
