Welcome to the Newbury And District Amateur Radio Society (NADARS) web site

Newbury Radio Rally

Sunday 24th June 2018

Thank you to all those that attended the 2018 Rally!

Newbury Radio Rally 2018 - CHANGE OF DATE

Newbury and District ARS (NADARS) are delighted to announce the date of the Newbury Rally for 2018. It will be held again at the prestige venue of the Royal Berkshire Showground on Sunday 24th June. Gates opening to sellers at 8am and to the public at 9am.

Yes. This is a week later than previous years but a move has been necessary to gain help from volunteers to run the event. NADARS pride themselves in attention to detail and maintaining high standards of service to both Sellers and Buyers but it takes a large number of members to staff the event.

We hope the move away from Father's Day will be allow yet more interested parties to attend what has become one of the largest amateur radio events in the South of England.

The Newbury and District Amateur Radio Society (NADARS) has been in existence for over 50 years. The Call Sign of the Society is G5XV. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 19:30 at The Travellers Friend pub, Crookham Common, Thatcham, RG19 8EA (Map). There is usually an informal lecture relating to radio at the meeting

We hold many other social and radio related events. These include courses to enable members of the public to become radio amateurs. We hold two day 'Foundation Licence' courses which train a person how to operate an amateur radio station safely. After the course we hold a basic examination. To date we have a 98% success rate with this course

We also hold The Newbury Radio Rally in June at the Newbury Showground, where many radio and computing bargains may be found, as well as club and society stands, and live demonstration stations. This attracts visitors from all over the country. For further information contact Phill, G6EES.

NADARS enters many contests each year including IOTA, NFD and VHF FD.
