Midland Amateur Radio Society (MARS) is a amateur radio club based in South Birmingham, UK meeting weekly to offer training, examinations and social activities.
Since 1931, MARS has engaged like-minded individuals in and around the Birmingham area in amateur radio activity. Today, the Society still operates with the same values as it always has done and welcomes newcomers to the hobby in exactly the same way as it does long time licensed amateurs and everyone in between.
MARS is fortunate to benefit from a fully operational radio installation with equipment available for members to use at meetings for both training purposes and their general enjoyment. The club is as much social as it is a club for a technical hobby. There are many aspects of the hobby from construction, digital communication, electronics and that is without picking up a microphone.
