HARS is dedicated to the advancement of Amateur Radio and Social enjoyment
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 with activity and gives you the chance to workstations in new squares and new DX you may not normally be able to contact. You don’t need to be a super-station or top operator to work many stations. Everyone can have a go!

A few club members are active in the RSGB HF CC series of events. These have SSB, CW and Data contests so there is an event for all operator preferences.
These run on weekday evenings and only run for 1·5 hours so not a marathon session at all. The day of the week tends to vary each month so it’s worth checking the RSGB HF Calendar.
