Celebrating 100 years of Amateur Radio in Guildford


In 1918 a group of enthusiasts interested in the new hobby of
Amateur Radio formed a group in Guildford and named it the
Guildford Wireless Alliance and there has been at least one
Amateur Radio society in Guildford ever since.

Now 100 years later, the Guildford & District Radio Society,
Wey Valley Amateur Radio Group and the Guildford Repeater
group are pleased to celebrate 100 years of Amateur Radio
in Guildford.

We will be running a Special Event Station over the August
Bank Holiday (25
th to 27th August) and would like to work
as many stations as possible.

We aim to be on HF, VHF and digital modes and maybe DMR
on the Guildford repeater GB7GF.

We would also like as many amateurs that can make it to visit
our Special Event Station at the Guildford Model Engineers HQ,
London Road, Guildford, Surrey GU1 1TU.
