Who are WoSARS?

 

The West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society was established in May 1970. And indeed next year will be the Society’s 50th đŸ™‚

We are a not for profit organisation comprising of amateur radio enthusiasts (hams) who gather on Friday nights at the Garnethill Multicultural Centre where we are involved in many aspects of this historic and yet modern hobby. We also provide technical support and licence training via our appropriately named SOLDER GROUP  located at the Electron Club, within The Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JD
