The Southdown Amateur Radio Society is a club for anybody interested in amateur radio, with members across the South Downs and even further afield.

We meet on a weekly basis at one of our two radio sites, as well as once a month in our Eastbourne-based club rooms.

We have members interested in everything from CW to modern data mode and participate in many contests each year – you can read more about what we get up to on the blog, or below.
