South Derbyshire and Ashby Woulds Amateur Radio Group

The Moira Community Hub has been the home of the radio group since it was first formed. SDAWARG meet every Wednesday at Moira Replan Centre from 7pm until 9pm.

All aspects of amateur radio are discussed in a very informal manner.

So what sort of things happen?

Radio operating (when conditions permit, the whole world becomes available); talking to and listening to satellites (including the international space station); building of kits and equipment; aerial building is always popular; vintage radio restoration; slow scan TV. The club is now running (since July 2023) a WSPR Lite Antenna Performance System (SOTABeams) – more info can be found on the club website.

We also have field days (operating portable away from the club); the occasional quiz night; club outings; radio contests; general chit chat; club social events for family including a popular Christmas meal. A cup of tea is always on offer whether you just want to visit and see what we do, or (hopefully) become a member.

Training and exams can also be done within our club with registered instructors.

The club has a very diverse membership and are always looking for new members to join  and increase our presence in the world of amateur radio.

So, whether your interests lie in the practical side of amateur radio or just listening to the airwaves, why not come along and see what we are all about.
