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

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.

SARS has established the following schedule for VHF FM radio communications with our members and friends at the above show.

Line of sight distance is 29 miles which should be workable to stations with elevated aerials. We invite other stations at the W&PR and elsewhere to join the net and to send signal reports, Maidenhead locator, equipment, aerial details and operator name.  G1KAR/P will be pleased to direct the net should numbers dictate. We understand that the main frequency at W&PR may be 51.70MHz and will be pleased to co-ordinate with the on-site special event station as directed.

We may also be active on 3.615MHz AM by request. (Sat 27th only)
