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 Training Team at HARS are pleased to announce that plans are going well for the first Foundation Licence Course since Covid-19.
It is being held at the HARS Clubrooms at Newton over the weekend of 1st and 2nd April 2023.
There are still a few free slots so if any club members know of SWLs or maybe other family members who would wish to have a licence then contact Dave Porter G4OYX on TRAINING@HEREFORDRADIOCLUB.UK who is organising the course as soon as possible. The cost is £40 and that includes the RSGB £32.50 exam fee. Already we have two XYLs of HARS members who are on this course!
For those M3s, M6s and M7s who may have passed their foundation licence exam ages ago, or even recently with maybe home study and the on-line exam, we are now taking bookings for an Intermediate Licence Course later in the year.
Course numbers may be limited so please get in contact if you wish to upgrade your licence.
Again please contact Dave Porter G4OYX on TRAINING@HEREFORDRADIOCLUB.UK
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.
For more information and any questions contact Dave Porter, G4OYX on the HARS Training button

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.
