Welcome to Swansea Radio Society!

What is Amateur Radio?

“Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby and volunteer public service that uses designated radio frequencies for non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communications.” –RSGB.org

What do you do in Swansea?

Currently we are working on building a new society. We have a grant of money from the RCF that we will be using to buy equipment and put up antennas on the roof of Engineering East.

We will be running events throughout the year, and activities ranging from Summets On The Air to Amateur Radio Direction Finding to Special Event Stations.

How can I get involved?

Register your interest to join the society here. I will then get in touch and introduce you to what is going on. If you would like to become an official member, join up at our society page

How can I get my licence?

Getting an amateur radio licence is easy! You need to complete some practical assessments to show that you can operate a radio safely, then take a 26 question, multiple choice exam. Nothing to worry about and we will be running Foundation courses at Swansea University. If you are still eager for more, we will look into running intermediate and full courses as required
