Foundation Courses at Bracknell ARC

The club is now able to offer courses for the amateur radio examinations. The first of
these was a Foundation Licence course held on Saturdays September 8th and 15th
2007 at our club meeting place, Bracknell Methodist Church. Several more courses have
been held since and a high pass rate has been achieved at all our courses.

If you are interested in future courses please contact.

Further information on Amateur Radio licences and the Foundation course can be found on
the RSGB site.

Club Activities

In addition to our monthly meetings, the Club participates in amateur radio
organised by the RSGB. See our contest pages.

Other activities in our calendar include a barbecue, bring and show evening, and
participation in local rallies.

The Dave Sugden Memorial Trophy is awarded annually by the
committee to the member considered contributing the most to club or amateur radio

Want to know what the club was like in 1977?  Look here for some
real nostalgia…

And some even earlier photos from 1973.

And a flavour of what contest activity was like in 1978,
kindly supplied by former member Chris Byard.

The club participated in VHF NFD over the weekend of July 6th and 7th, being a joint
operation with Flight Refuelling ARS. A good score was achieved, although there was
very little sporadic E on 6m.
