Set up in August 2012 and based at The Ashton Town Football Club, the Radio Club was founded by Peter ‘M0RGN’ and his wife Elaine ‘M6CLB’ with a view to promoting the fascinating world of Amateur Radio to the wider community.
There is ample off road car parking space, but vehicles are left at the owners own risk.
Inside the club you will find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for chillin’ chatting or a game of pool, there is a bar area for those that would like more than a warm brew, which is also available. The radio room is adequately equipped for both long and short distance contacts and has plenty of space for operators and log keepers as well as those that prefer to construct radio related projects.
And with that out of the way, next comes the equipment we have available:
Radios: Yaesu FT950 & FT450D for HF,
Yaesu FT480R for VHF,
Antennas in use: V2000 Tri Band Antenna: 6m/2m/70cms
X7000 Tri Band Antenna: 2m/70cms/23cms
Home-brew two band fan dipole.
Off Centre Dipole which is between two flood lights.
Please Note! No equipment is left on site.
So with all that said, all we ask of you is:
Give respect to the club and other members.
Help those that are new to the hobby.
Respect those that are operating the radios in the radio shack.
But most of all, enjoy your night with us.
Thanks for your time and
Peter M0RGN, Elaine M6CLB & all the members of the
Ashton in Makerfield Amateur Radio Club.
