Following the cancellation of the 2020 Newbury Radio Rally we look forward to seeing you at the Newbury Radio Rally again next year when we all hope to be reinvigorated and even more excited to provide you with what has become one of the most loved and popular rallies of its kind in the UK.

The Newbury and District Amateur Radio Society (NADARS) has been in existence for 99 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.
