HARS is a well-established club supporting the Radio Amateur community of Herefordshire and offering a warm welcome to fellow Amateur Radio operators and short-wave listeners from the surrounding counties.
Training courses have now restarted
The Hereford Amateur Radio Society is pleased to announce that face-to-face amateur radio training has again re-started.
We are running a Foundation Licence Course at the HARS Clubrooms at Hill House, Newton, Leominster, HR6 0PE over the weekend of April 1st and 2nd 2023, 0900-1600.
Cost is £40 and this covers the RSGB examination fee of £32.50.
Certified results from the on-line quiz are available on the day enabling an application to Ofcom and so you should have your licence by Easter on April 9th!
You will need to purchase the Foundation Licence Manual textbook and have a read through before you attend the course, but don’t worry if you don’t understand it all, we will fix that on the course!
Make sure it is the Second Edition printed after August 2022 and thus up-to-date
Overnight accommodation is plentiful in the nearby towns and villages but you might fancy the Travelodge at Woofferton some seven miles north of Hill House.

Contesting (sometimes referred to as Sport Radio) is a great way to advance your station and operating skills. It also turns an often very quiet band into one that is buzzing. Vist our contests page to find out more.

When we have some warmer and more settled weather Josh is happy to update the firmware on GB3HC and this too can then be connected to Wires-x with the second port on HRI-200 box.
