Amateur radio equipment

80+ years of amateur radio and still going strong!

The club ran a public access special event station over the weekend of 24/25 June 2017 in beautiful Burnham Beeches in celebration of its 80th birthday and to introduce local residents and visitors to the Beeches to the wonders of Amateur radio.

About BBRC

The Burnham Beeches radio club meets at 8pm on the first and third Monday of the month, normally at the Village hall in Farnham Common, but check below that the meeting isn't out and about.

We are a friendly club that encompasses all aspects of this fascinating hobby from those just starting out to more old hands.
