Home

Welcome to CDARC! We're a friendly radio club based in Cambridge and the surrounding area. We have weekly nets, meetings twice per month, training courses, field days and social events (particularly over the summer months). Radio is a broad hobby and club members have different special interests - from contesting to morse or digital modes. We welcome absolute beginners as well as experienced hams. If you're new, drop us a line at committee@cdarc.org.uk and we can suggest things that might be of interest.
