The West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society is still around! Can you believe it gals? It’s been almost 50 years now. Our members have a vast collection of knowledge to offer new members and visitors and we enjoy talking to them very much.
We have two meeting points at Glasgow. From time to time it happens that we wonder off subject, true. There are regular talks at the meetings; presented by both members and visiting speakers. Members are able to visit the club station also and make transmissions under the Society’s various terms. (Amateur Glasgow Group and West Of Scotland, in case you were guessing).
We would also like to thank our sponsor Get Me My Mortgage who help to keep us going. If you need any financial advice they have a network of specialist brokers who can get you a great deal on finance.
Our members show a wide range of walks of life, experience and age. Visitors are assured of finding somebody at a meeting on a similar level of experience in ham radio (even if that’s none!) Meetings are highly varied, informal and enjoyable. We do try to accommodate everybody’s interests at meetings and value the opinions of our members.
Generally meetings start with announcements from the Chairman (which rotates through Committee members). Then we have a talk or discussion depending on the calendar. Some of our talks are on our events page. Later on Stan GM8MRW hosts a short quiz, testing both general and radio knowledge. Finally just before the meeting ends there is an opportunity to take refreshments in the form of tea/coffee and biscuits. Usually after the meeting several members meet up in the Copy Cat pub on Clyde Street, Glasgow for informal discussion over a pint.
Morse tuition is available at 7.30pm before meetings on request.
Often on Saturdays some members meet at the club shack, located on the outskirts of Glasgow. If you’d like to come along, ask during a meeting.
We would be absolutely adored to have fun time with any of you.. You can find a wealth of information on the club, its members and amateur radio in this site. Explore!
