Southport and District Amateur Radio Club (SADARC)

We’re an active club of amateur radio operators and short wave listeners. Our aims are to promote Amateur Radio in all its forms, support existing Amateur Radio enthusiasts, encourage new people into the hobby whilst having fun along the way. Amongst other things we organise…

We meet on the 3rd Monday of the month at St. Marks Church Hall, Scarisbrick on the A570 Ormskirk to Southport road.

At our meetings, you will find a warm and friendly group with whom to share, obtain new, and enhance existing skills, listen to visiting speakers and talks by members and hold business meetings and on-air nights.

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 are unable to offer training for the radio exams at the moment. If you are interested in getting licensed please contact us and we will put you in touch with another club that can help.
