Description

The Saltash and District Amateur Radio Club (SADARC) was formed in 1964 after some informal meetings of Radio Amateurs and Short Wave Listeners at the QTH of Bob Ellis, G3SN.

In the past, we have run very successful mobile rallies, and in August 1996, SADARC activated a special event station, GB0HJC, to commemorate the centenary of Captain Sir Henry Jackson's historic radio experiments from HMS Defiance, a torpedo training school moored in the River Lynher at Saltash. He began experimenting in December 1895 and by autumn of 1896 with his transmitter mounted on another vessel, Jackson was receiving signals at a range of 300 yards, making him the first Briton to use radio waves for practical communication.

SADARC meets at the Burraton Community Centre (upstairs at rear), Grenfell Avenue, Saltash, at 7.00 p.m. normally on the third Tuesday of each month.

SADARC holds two callsigns, G4GXK and G8SAL, and is affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) and the Royal Naval Amateur Radio Society (RNARS).

SADARC has been a member of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) for over 58 years!
