Welcome to DADARS (2014)
Welcome to the
Derby & District ARS website. This
year we recognise the 103rd
birthday of the Derby Wireless Club, established in 1911, which still continues
today as an incorporated entity within the DADARS.
Last year we
witnessed the 100th birthday of the RSGB, the Leicester ARS and the
Furness ARS. This year and in the near future, we know other radio clubs and
societies will approach 100 years reflecting the maturity of the hobby. So brace yourselves for lots of GB callsigns
for those centenary stations! Maybe a
contest within the Society to see who can collect the most different centenary
celebration QSL cards during 2014 would be a laugh!
Looking to the
right-hand side of this page you’ll see our “Club Activities” column listing
the events on a Tuesday in the Clubroom (unless shown to the contrary) and on
the left a list of the external events where
we operate from various locations in and around the City of Derby. So, if you’re in the Derby area on a Tuesday
evening (not Committee Meeting nights please), you are welcome to pop in and
say hello. No doubt the kettle will be
on for either a tea or coffee. As the
expression goes, ‘a stranger is a friend you’ve not met yet’, so come along and
make new friends!
