ABOUT THE HORNSEA AMATEUR RADIO
The Club was formed in 1971. The three storey building, which the club now occupies, had been unoccupied for about nine years and was completely renovated by the hard work of club members. The club now consists of a fully equipped lecture hall (the result of a Lottery grant), a lounge area and a well appointed shack. There are facilities for operating h.f. vhf, uhf and fast scan TV.
HARC is affiliated to the RSGB and subscribes to the QRP club and local repeater groups. It can also boast that two former R.S.G.B. presidents are members of the Club, namely G4CHH and G4EJP.
The members interests include hf working including qrp, antenna design, home construction, fox hunts, fast scan television and slow scan television , microwaves, satellite working and computing, including digital techniques.
