The Burnham Beeches Radio Club meets at 8pm on the first and third Monday of the month, by Zoom currently but we’re looking to restart meetings at Farnham Common Village Hall. Do check the calendar though, in case the meeting is out and about.
We are a friendly club that encompasses all aspects of this fascinating hobby from those just starting out to old hands.
For more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Club members wishing to sign up to the club’s email reflector can email the same address or contact Mike, G4RAA, at a club meeting.
80+ years of amateur radio and still going strong!
Despite the current coronavirus pandemic, and unlike many radio clubs, BBRC has kept a full calendar of events going. Most meetings take place via Zoom but there have been a few notable socially-distanced outdoor events. These included the VHF direction-finding ‘foxhunt’ and several DX Picnics, where members set up individual stations in a field.
In the early summer of 2020 club members went into production of headshields for health and care workers, as personal protection equipment was in very short supply. We produced many hundreds of items which were distributed to NHS staff, care workers and even a funeral director or two.
The club ran a public access special event station over the weekend of 24/25 June 2017 in beautiful Burnham Beeches in celebration of its 80th birthday and to introduce local residents and visitors to the Beeches to the wonders of Amateur radio.
