Welcome to The Radio Society of Harrow, G3EFX old 2

Keeping in touch during the Covid-19 crisis

Please see the Arrangements for Club Activities During the Covid-19 Crisis statement from our chairman, as well as how we are keeping in touch and ensuring the welfare of our members during this difficult time.

Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby that uses radio frequencies for exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communications. It is the only hobby governed by international treaty.

Radio amateurs transmit radio signals on a number of designated frequency bands for various purposes:

  • Contacting people all over the world
  • Competing in international competitions to test good you are as an operator
  • Technical experimentation — many of the leaps forward in radio technology have been initiated by radio amateurs
  • Communication through amateur satellites or with the International Space Station
  • Providing communications at times of emergencies

GB3HR, The Harrow 433 MHz (70 cms) FM Repeater

A new UHF Base Station has recently been installed and is running 9 Watts erp from our site near Harrow Weald. The new transceiver consists of a Kenwood TKR 851 running 12 Watts RF output on 433.350 MHz and receiving on 434.950 MHz. The station will relay FM transmissions when a continuous sub-audible tone (CTCSS) of 82.5 Hz is sent. The station identifies as GB3HR D in Morse Code, the D denoting the sub-audible code 82.5 Hz. The station has also had a new 6dbD gain collinear antenna installed and this has greatly improved coverage throughout Watford, Harrow and surrounding areas.
