About NWARG

North Wales Amateur Radio Group (NWARG) was formed in December of 2019 by a group of radio amateurs that yearned for a local club that encouraged it’s membership to use all modes of amateur radio, to experiment with radio, to learn about radio and above all to be friendly and supportive of all of it’s members.  Indeed, the Group ethos is that whilst we actively engage in and enjoy all aspects of the amateur radio hobby we also encourage and value good friendship and support within our membership.

Once covid restrictions are lifted the group will meet weekly at the Mochdre village hall from 7pm till 9pm. We also have our HQ at the Northwood Hotel in Rhos on Sea where we conduct training and have a fully equipped radio shack. We always welcomes both licensed amateur radio operators and people who have an interest in radio and in particular people who are interested in obtaining an amateur radio license. For more information on obtaining your amateur radio operators license please complete the contact form.

NWARG has two affiliated clubs and one affiliated repeater group, Eryri-DX, the North Gwynedd and Anglesey Raynet Group and the LLandudno Repeater Group. Between NWARG and our affiliated clubs we strive to have regular on air evenings, field trips and special event stations, and interesting talks by either members or invited guests.  

Have questions about Amateur Radio? Well amongst our membership we have a superb talent base and there will almost certainly be a member that can support you in almost every aspect and mode of Amateur Radio.

So why not pop along and see what North Wales Amateur Radio Group can offer you? You don’t need to be a licenced radio amateur to join the North Wales Amateur Radio Group.

    I am interested in obtaining a radio licence, but would first like to chat with people who have a great experience in ham radio.

    I have purchased recently a Baofeng UV-5 transceiver. Whilst I am slowly finding my way around how it operates I’ve reached a stage where I am in need of assistance in order to progress within the legal framework of operation. At the moment I’ve just been using the unit as a scanner.

    I appreciate that Corvid-19 has no doubt temporarily put a hold on meetings, but once meetings recommence could you email me the date of the first meeting so that I can attend.

    In the meantime would you let me know what the membership fee is and when and how can I pay it.

    Regards,

    Alan Beardow

    I see you’re the Chairman!

    I’ve had a look round and I must say that this is a website to be proud of. Yes, of course I’d be happy to provide some content for your CW section.

    Speak soon (on CWCOM or email)

    I’m trying to get my call sign reallocated but they need to see some sort of candidate number etc

    My address at the time
    *******HIDDEN BY ADMIN*******
    Many thanks

    1. That would have been NWRS not NWARG as we are a new club since November 2019. I have however passed your message to our training officer who may be advises you to contact RSGB and see if they can trace the candidate number. I know some people have had their callsign re-instated by providing a year book entry so maybe that would be worth investigating too.
      Regards
