Gloucester Amateur Radio & Electronics Society: 100 Year Celebration
We know that the club can trace its history back over a hundred years.
- in 1921, the Wireless Society of Gloucester petitioned the postmaster general for telegraphy facilities
- on 21st March 1926, the Gloucester Wireless Club was formed
- in the 1950's, the name was changed to the Gloucester Amateur Radio Society and we were affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain
- on 13th January 1997, the current name was adopted to broaden the Society's perspecive and cater for those interested in electronics in addition to those purely interested in amateur radio.
It would have been nice to have celebrated our anniversary in 2021 but Covid got in the way, so...
On Saturday, 13th August 2022, we are holding a special celebration.
