Welcome to MKARS the Milton Keynes Amateur Radio Society.
The club has nearly 60 years of history and an enthusiastic membership with very diverse interests. The club is particularly proud of the association with Bletchley Park and our successful training, for which we have introduced hundreds of members to the hobby.
Please feel free to visit us on our club nights or at any of the events in our diary.
To find out more about MKARS and what we have been up to check out our news items below or subscribe to our news feed. For more information on our news and diary feeds please check out our feed information page.
There is a weekly net on the clubs 70cm repeater GB3MK. All members and prospective members are welcome.
Not to be missed the MKARS rally is known to be a good one, we had an excellent turnout last year with a good selection of traders and special interest groups. Buying, Selling or just socialising click the Rally Info link on the left for details.
3rd April will be a special bring & buy event, the idea is you bring all the stuff you want to get rid of, some money, and you go home with different stuff. Plus the usual rag-chew in good company of course.
Why not have a go at one of the RSGB contests? There are regular contests on the VHF bands. Registering your results is quite easy and will gain the club some valued points in the league tables. Contest dates are posted in the club diary on the left.
Due to the high demand for training we will be running 2 Foundation courses this year, one starting on the 24th January and the other after Easter. We still have a few places available for the post Easter course.
If you have asked for a place on these courses you should get an e-mail in the next few days. If you do not recive an e-mail then contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
It is planned to start a Foundation course starting early/mid January 2017.
If you are interested in joining the course or have shown interest previously please let us know on email@example.com
