ODARS takes part in the VHF Field Day, 2018
Oxford & District Amateur Radio Society (ODARS) is a group of amateur radio enthusiasts, we meet twice monthly at a private social club about one and a half miles from Oxford City centre, If you are a visiting amateur or short wave listener, or just have an interest in learning more about this interesting hobby, you will be made most welcome at our meetings. Our society was formed in 1923 with the first officers being the President Mr W.F. Beesley, Hon Treasurer Mr J. Piggot G2WA, and Hon Secretary Mr V. T. Terner.
The majority of our members are licensed amateurs, meetings provide the opportunity to interact socially and to exchange ideas and information over a drink in a pleasant environment. Usually we try to arrange a special evening where a club member or visitor will give a talk/presentation on a topic of interest to members.
During the year we organise social events, and twice a year we take part in competitions that require us to operate a radio station for 24 hours, in the field, under canvas.
ODARS 6m net: 13.30hrs local time weekdays on 50.257MHz upper side band.
We meet at 7.30pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at the
263 Iffley Road,
