Intermediate Licence Course
We are planning an intermediate licence course which will run from July to September.  We have not yet finalised the course dates but are hoping to run this on Tuesday evenings.  As always we will not be charging members for the tuition but will have to make a small charge for the use of the club house.  This will be divided among the students on the couses so the more there are of you the less it will cost.   There will also be a small charge for the materials used in the construction part of the course.  If you  are interested in taking this course please let us know as soon as possible.  We will try and arrange dates to fit in with holidays where possible.
Shack Pictures Here
We have started the shacks section with pictures from Philip and Pete.  In view of the security questions raised by John G8OXZ we are only identifying them by the first name of the owner.  Hopefully this will make you more confident about sending pictures.  Please let us have some more shack pictures.

Change to Club Net.
We have decided to extend the net with a second session on Sundays at 1930.  Look forward to hearing you all then.  Frequencies are the same 144.515 FM and 432.525 FM

The minutes of the committe meetings will now be published on this site in the club documents section

Welcome to Banbury Amateur Radio Society

We meet regularly on the first and third Wednesday of each month for general club meetings and on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month for contruction projects. On the occasions where there is a fifth Wednesday in the month there is no meeting.

 We meet at 169 Bloxham Road, Banbury, OX16 9JU. The clubhouse is at the bottom of the garden. Go through the side gate and walk down the garden. We have a wide range of radio equipment and aerials which club members can use.

We are an informal group and always ready to welcome new members to the club. Come along and give us a try. We run courses for each of the levels of amateur licence when we have enough applicants.  We have three qualified instructors and a huge amount of experience within our membership all of whom will be willing to help you get whatever licence for which you are aiming.
