Livingston and District ARS

| November 11, 2013

The Livingston and District Amateur Radio Society are hosting an event to celebrate the centenary of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) on Thursday 21and Friday 22 November 2013.  We will be on the air from 8am until 10pm each day, with a view to contacting and logging as many amateur radio stations worldwide as possible.
We will be operating a radio station on the 2 meter band on FM and the 20, 40 & 80 meter bands on SSB and CW.  The Provost, as well as several West Lothian Councillors, have confirmed their attendance over the two days in support of the event.  We believe this will not only celebrate the RSGB’s 100th, but also put Livingston, and West Lothian in general, on the world map. The venue is the Crofthead Community Centre, Templar Rise, Dedridge, Livingston, where the Radio Society meet every Tuesday evening. This is also the location of the local Raynet Communication Centre, who support WLC’s Emergency Planning Officer, Caroline Burton.

Any radio enthusiasts wishing to attend are welcome to drop in at any time during the event. This event is also open to members of the public who may wish to further their interest in radio communications. Radio society members will be more than happy to try and answer any questions you may have about the hobby.

This would also be an opportunity to give an insight into what happens in our club and how popular amateur radio is in the local area and around the world.

Should you require any additional information or clarification on this event, please contact Iain Smith, the society corporate communications officer on mobile 07710-441423 or by e-mail at,
