Welcome to MKARS the Milton Keynes Amateur Radio Society.
With over 50 years of history and 100 members MKARS is one of the largest amateur radio clubs in Britain. Please feel free to visit us on our club nights or at any of the events in our diary.

We have booked a pitch at the Dunstable Kite Festival. This is an opportunity to help us out with a Special Event Station. There are various stalls, tents and an arena where there are many different kite displays.
This is a great opportunity to show the general public what it is that we do and promote the club. It would be great to see as many people as possible as well as friends of the club who would be welcome to come visit.
The festival itself is free (although there is a small daily parking charge at Dunstable Downs).
Bring all your family and friends to Wendover Woods and join us as we have a day out with BBQ and Radios.
A Barbecue Pitch has been booked and we will be shortly putting in arrangements for food, drink and of course various modes of radio.
More information can be found on the forum:
