Following a dissatisfaction with the management of RCS, some members (mainly young) decided to start up a new club – The West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society – WoSARS, initially meeting at the TA Signals Regiment premises – Jardine Street.
After several aborted attempts to produce a Club Newsletter, the Club was successful in launching the Monthly NEWSLETTER which ‘morphed’ into the successful GM MAGazine with the formation of the RADIO CLUB of SCOTLAND in 1962.
Following a fire within the Virginia Street complex, the Club itself wasn’t badly damaged but other parts of the building suffered, the owners decided to redevelop the complex. As such the Club was forced to seek new premises. TBAdded
