Welcome to our 2024 Club Events page.

September 1st signals the start of our new club year. As we enter our thiteenth year of the Fort Purbrook Amateur Radio Club, we hope to make 2024 a year of enjoyable radio activity and club member camaraderie.

Please click on the images to enlarge them.

Our location on the Western ramparts brings many benefits, allowing space for the marquee and multiple antenna set-ups. Parking is close to where we set up the marquee, making access much easier. For the winter months we will be in classroom FP-1, near to the Fort Reception Office. For further information, please refer to our calendar below.


Thinking about coming along to one of our meetings at the Fort?
Please get in touch with Graham M0CYX for further information and directions.
