Welcome to DADARS (102 Years of Amateur Radio)
As we know, DADARS encompasses the Derby Wireless Club (DWC) and we celebrated 100 years in 2011. In 2013 it is the turn of the RSGB to celebrate their 100 years of continued service to the amateur radio and short wave listener enthusiast.

The ‘DWC’ website (see “Quick Links”) records our Centenary celebrations and historic activities, thus keeping this DADARS site for new events from the planning through to a report of how we went on. Our focus in attempting some contests including some QRP activity along with our more traditional events will help show that whilst we’re well over 100 we can still walk tall and proud. If you’re in the Derby area on a Tuesday evening, please come along and say hello, and we’ll probably have the kettle on!
