About our club

BACKGROUND

A.D.A.R.S is based in the Borough of Antrim, Northern Ireland. We meet at The Greystone Community Centre, Antrim, on the second Friday of each month at 7:30pm. The club is open to all who have an interest in amateur radio, shortwave listening and electronics. We aim to provide courses for the Foundation and Intermediate Licenses and give as much support as possible to those who wish to pursue the Advanced level including a registered exam centre to sit their exam. Local chat frequencies in Antrim are 145.475MHz and 433.550MHz. Call Robert MI0GDO on 145.500 and QSY to 145.475 or on 433.550.
The club station is usually operational on club evenings and often active for special events. Not only is it a great way to promote amateur radio and the club within the local community, but also gives members an opportunity to operate on bands and modes that may not normally be available to them. The local 2m repeater is GB3LY on 145.600 Mhz
More recently our club has become an affiliated club with FISTS, membership number 19290. We look forward to working with FISTS on a regular basis.

Due to coronavirus restrictions being lifted and the successful vaccination program we will be meeting in person again on 11th June.

During the past year due to coronavirus restrictions the club has been meeting biweekly via Zoom.  Contact the chairman, Robert Mi0GDO, if you would like to join us, see contact details.

We also hold weekly 2 metre nets on Friday and Saturday nights around 8pm.   You will hear MN0GFE around 145.475.  Listen out for our callsign, we are a busy club.
