Business as Usual

You’d be forgiven for thinking that nothing is happening at MARS after browsing this site but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We have recently finished teaching an Intermediate Level course with a number of students having already passed the exam and have their 2E0 callsigns. We’ve had Foundation Level exam passes, video nights, impromptu presentations and much more.

If you have been thinking of visiting us to join in the fun or just find out more about amateur radio, please come along on any Wednesday evening where we guarantee a warm welcome. Please see www.midlandars.org.uk/meetings for more information on times and where to find us.


MARS 85th Anniversary

June 2023 marks the 92nd anniversary of the founding of the Midland Amateur Radio Society.

MARS was formed in 1931 by a group of Birmingham based amateurs and is still very active to this day. It seems only right to celebrate this significant milestone in a way that only amateurs can!

Watch this space for details as they are announced.

New Website

logo160We have been given notice by the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) that our previous website hosting is to be discontinued. Therefore, a new website has been constructed to serve the needs of the Midland Amateur Radio Society in the coming years.

The new site is hosted using an open source content management system (CMS) and can be updated by several people at once. This also allows much greater flexibility than that offered to us by the RSGB facility and we hope that we can build a site that will evolve into a useful resource for both newcomers to radio and seasoned amateurs alike.
