We are a friendly, active and supportive Club and welcome new members. Our members range from beginners (starting out in radio) to seasoned fully qualified amateurs and everyone in between. Some of our members specialise in different modes of operation and are only too pleased to help you along.
So why not come along to one of our meetings (we don't bite). Have a look at the front page to see when the next meeting is. Hope to see you soon.
We aim to give you an insight into Amateur Radio, a licence must be held to be able to operate amateur radio equipment and our Club offers individuals an opportunity to train, progress and learn about the licensing procedures and all that is needed to be able to get "on air".
There are three licences that can be achieved, these are firstly, the Foundation Licence, secondly, the Intermediate Licence and finally, the Full Licence.
Amateur Radio is a technical hobby which can promote social networking and friendship both here in the UK around the World.
It can provide knowledge for career interests, computer and Internet networking. We can help you learn about Radio equipment available, learn new skills to be able to construct your own equipment when you attain the relevant licence to do so.
You can improve your operating skills at field days and special events put on through the year by the Club and gain new like-minded friends and information at the Club's fortnightly meetings. Please feel free to navigate aound our site for interestting articles, reviews and news.
The Brigg & District Amateur Radio Club aim to promote and encourage activity on the air, by regular informal Nets and by taking part in Special Events stations.
Ultimately we will strive to promote the responsible use of Radio Communications.
