Southport and District Amateur Radio Club (SADARC)


All our face to face meetings and special events are currently cancelled. We hope to be back as soon as it is safe. In the meantime join us every Sunday on our 2m net at 19.30, initially on the calling frequency (145.500) and the QSY to a free channel.

Contesting can be great fun; several club members take part in various contests during the year to earn points for the club in various RSGB contests. Why not join in!

Special event stations promote Amateur Radio to the public and celebrate various local and national events; they’re also a great opportunity to get to know fellow members better.


We offer, jointly with another club, training for the radio exams. If you are interested in getting licensed please contact us.
