West Kent ARS.
The West Kent ARS has been established for over 65 years, holding its inaugural meeting on the 7th April 1948, and still holds monthly meetings where typically members and visitors have a presentation, mostly involving some aspect of amateur radio.
The West Kent ARS have established weekly HF and VHF nets, which while these are for club members, current non-members are also most welcome to call in and get to know us.
The nets are held on;
Sunday 11am, 28,700MHz
Monday 8pm, 145,375MHz
Membership is open to all with an interest in the hobby, whether licensed or not, and runs from the 1st of January till the 31st December annually. Further details regarding joining West Kent ARS and a membership application form can be found here.
Training for the amateur radio licence.
The West Kent ARS is now engaged in training new radio amateurs to gain their licence, and has a proven record of success in getting candidates through the three exam levels. Further details about our training plans can be found here, or by emailing the club at; firstname.lastname@example.org
The club distributes email reminders about club meetings to many of the amateurs in and around the West Kent area, in addition periodic emails are sent with relevant information to those registered for email communications to keep them informed of local amateur radio matters.
