The Risca and District Amateur Radio Society, a friendly group of amateur radio enthusiasts who meet once a week.

Visit us on Tuesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm and meet our members.

Amateur Radio helps to bring people together, learn about technology and make new friends with radio.

We are dedicated to supporting Amateur Radio and on this website you can find information on the entry level Foundation course.


Whether you are licensed or not, we can offer a warm welcome to new and prospective members;

 Contacting people all over the world by radio, which often leads to developing international friendships.

 Communication through amateur space satellites, or with the International Space Station (which carries an amateur radio station) is possible.

 Amateurs help at time of emergencies and disasters and help other organisations with their communications.

 We help other voluntary organisations and visit Bletchley Park and other places of interest.

 We explore the history of amateur radio including famous radio amateurs.

The Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced courses are free


The Foundation licence is your gateway to the world of amateur radio

The course and exam that leads to the licence provides you with an exciting introduction to the hobby while requiring an acceptable minimum level of skill and experience.

We will be pleased to talk you through the benefits of membership, answer any queries and suggest the most appropriate course for you.

It’s a great way to meet people and make new friends!

Join the world of amateur radio and expand your horizon.

The club is affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), a national body representing amateur radio and is a registered training and examination centre.
