The RAF Halton Radio Society was started in mid-2013. There had previously been a Radio Club at RAF Halton but this had closed many years before.
The new Club now has the use of a large room on the Station and is open most Saturdays and on occasions at other times. New members are always welcome and do not necessarily have to be RAF or ex members of the RAF.
The Club room has plenty of space for member’s projects and operating positions. In addition there is a small kitchenette where tea and coffee is available and the odd bacon roll!
Note: This page will be updated soon.
