Join us this December to gain an insight into the world of amateur radio

The Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB), in association with Bletchley Park, is pleased to offer a new workshop: An Introduction to Amateur Radio. 

The workshop is intended to give an introductory insight to amateur radio for anyone who wants to find out more or get involved in this interesting hobby. There will be people on hand to discuss the various aspects and the next steps should you wish to further your interest.

The workshop will consist of a mix of introductory talks, videos and demonstrations, with the morning session being held in a classroom environment. After the workshop, delegates will have the opportunity to visit the RSGB’s National Radio Centre (located within Bletchley Park) to see amateur radio in action.

At the NRC, delegates will have the opportunity to talk with our radio operators and to experience:

  • Short wave radio communication around the world
  • Receiving voice, Morse code and digital signal transmissions
  • Learning how to track satellites and the international space station
