WRAA meetingsWRAA Meetings

We meet on the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of every month, and other pre-scheduled times. Meetings normally start at 7.30pm unless otherwise noted. Many members just come along to socialise, but quite a few come along to use the nice cosy radio shack, where the latest gear can be operated. We are fortunate that our location offers great HF, VHF and UHF take off.

amateur radio license coursesTraining

At WRAA we also offer license training at all levels. This is run by our own members who have a wealth of knowledge and experience, although we are currently only able to offer courses when student numbers are sufficeint. Our members run courses as volunteers, and as such real life can often dictate thier frequency. If you are interetsed in finding out more, then go to our training pages.

Ham radio special event stationsEvents

Over the course of the year, WRAA members participate in numerous events. These events allow us to demonstrate the hobby to others who are not necessarily linked to the world of Ham Radio. These events may be operating demonstration stations at fêtes and carnivals, working with Youth organisations like the Scouts and Guides or just having fun operating somewhere different.

ham radio loan equipmentAccess

Here at WRAA we are privileged to have some of the most up to date equipment available, and also have access to those members who like to build and maintain their own. Where possible, we offer surplus equipment to those members less fortunate to own their own, and also offer access to a "shack" for those who are unable to operate from their homes.

Take A Look At Our Shack

worcester radio amateurs association logoSince our inception we have grown from strength to strength and now have in excess of 40 members, many of whom come along to the regular meetings held at 3rd Worcester Scout HQ, our poor kettle is rushed off it feet! We have been fortunate enough to install antennas and have a fully operational shack for use by ur members and visitors, and we have been successful in gaining financial support from the National Lottery and the Grass Roots funding schemes, so the equipment we have at our disposal is modern and easy to operate.

Our main goal is to build a sustainable "future proof" club for the area, and build on our successes.

we are always looking for new members. Experience isn't important as help is always at hand, however we have found that experienced Amateurs are only too happy to help newcomers get to grips with the hobby and we strongly support"mentoring" for the younger members. So, if you are just thinking about Radio as a hobby or you have been a "Ham" for years, drop us an email and ask about membership today.

For those of you who are not yet licensed, but would like to join in this hobby, WRAA will be running courses for the various levels of license available. You don't have to be a Ham to be a member, maybe you have been a CB operator in the past, or a Short wave Listener, whatever your background we would love to have you as a member.

Still not sure? Then contact us and we can arrange for you to come along and see Amateur Radio for yourself. What better way to find out if it is the hobby for you?
