The Farnborough & District Radio Society (FDRS) is a club for Radio Amateurs and Short Wave Listeners in and around Farnborough, Hampshire. If you have an interest in amateur radio we would be delighted to see you at our club, which meets at 7:30 for 8:00pm every 2nd and 4th Wednesday in the month. Meetings take place in the Boyce Building at the Aldershot Military Museum Queens Avenue, Aldershot, GU11 2LG unless otherwise stated. The Museum is managed by the Hampshire Cultural Trust. Map

CW NFD 1/2 June 2019
Peter M0URL our sole operator in this year's CW NFD worked over 600 stations from our contesting site.
A fantastic effort which won the G3MVZ Memorial Cup, the Leading Single Operator award from the RSGB.
