Mid Somerset Amateur Radio Club is an established Club that meets once a month to discover more about what amateur radio has to offer in all aspects of the hobby.

We’re a friendly group of about twenty members of all ages, experience and interests.

We’ve just moved to our new meeting venue which offers a larger meeting space, better access and off-road parking.

To find out more about the exciting hobby of amateur radio, why not come along on a club night and meet the members.

Our meetings are on the second Monday of each month at 19.35.

Do call our secretary David G8BFV for further information or just turn up at the next Club meeting. You’ll be made most welcome!

Graham Kimbell G3TCT, Chairman

Ou last meeting was on Monday 11th September where Stuart Robinson GW7HPW gave a fascinating talk on the story of the $50SAT, a project that was to become the World's smallest and lowest cost Earth Orbiting communications satellite. Given the option of a launch it would have been easy enough to design a satellite that was 're-assuringly complex'  but the team decided to take the opposite approach, how simple could a satellite be and still provide reliable two-way communications.


Our next meeting is the AGM on Monday October 9th at 19.45
