British Railways Amateur Radio Society

Membership of our society is open to employees of British railway companies and railway enthusiasts who have an interest in any facet of amateur radio, be it short wave listening to radio experimentation.

We run nets on HF which members and visitors are welcome to join. The international group FIRAC (to which we are affiliated) also run nets.

We publish a regular newsletter entitled “Rails & Radio”.

If you require any further information, you are welcome to e-mail our secretary.  Please visit our website
