Rochdale And District Amateur Radio Society Rally June 2019

Rochdale And District Amateur Radio Society RADARS meets every Wednesday at the Crimble Croft Community Centre, Aspinall Street, Heywood OL10 4HW from 19.30 until 21.30.

RADARS is a club affiliated with the Radio Society of Great Britain.

Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby and volunteer public service. As a licensed amateur radio operator, you are permitted to transmit and receive radio signals on frequency bands allocated for use by amateur radio amateurs. Amateur radio operators use these designated bands of radio frequencies for non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communications. A 1910 announcement by the then HM Postmaster General licensed “experimental wireless”, which still uniquely gives radio amateurs the ability to innovate without commercial or statutory controls even in the closely regulated environment of the 21st century. Amateur radio is the only hobby governed by international treaty.
