Welcome to our 2021 Club Events page.

September 1st signals the start of our new club year. As we enter our tenth year of the Fort Purbrook Amateur Radio Club, we hope to make 2021 a year of enjoyable radio activity and put the very challenging 2020 behind us.

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.


2m FM Club Net every Monday 8.00pm - 145.275MHz. All Welcome.

70cm FM Club Net every Friday 7.00pm, initially on Simplex 433.450MHz then QSY to GB3IW Repeater as part of a combined Club Net with IOW Radio Society members. All Welcome.
