The D&W is an opportunity to ask questions about amateur radio and discuss the latest trends in electronics in general many of which are often still in research or development in a friendly and convivial atmosphere.  They regularly prove most interesting and rewarding to those who attend.

It is especially suitable forum to anyone thinking of Amateur Radio as a hobby whatever your age or background and you will be made most welcome.

Always check the website regularly for the latest information and any changes to our programme.




Friday 20th March 2020

Owing to the problems created by the rapid spread of Coronavirus we are complying with UK Government

request for social distancing, not to meet up in Pubs, Clubs etc (which themselves are being asked this evening to close anyway).


We are therefore suspending ALL our social activities - Club Meetings at Irby Cricket Club and D & W's at many hostelries on Wirral for the next 3 months .. until Mid June at the earliest.  The good health of all our members, their families and friends are foremost in our decision and we wish everyone a safe and healthy exit to the current problems. 


We have re-started our Club Net after many years, which takes place on 145.325MHz S13 FM on a Wednesday evening from 8pm.  Do check and please feel free to call in whether a club member or not.  Also added is a meeting at the same time on ZOOM.  For more information please contact Simon our Secretary below.


Further announcements and News will be made here on the club website as and when necessary so please check here regularly for updates.


Any questions please address to our Club Secretary ..  Simon G6XHF   secretary@wadarc.com


No changes to any of above as of Friday 10th July 2020


Wednesday 15th July 2020 - Important Announcement.

It is hoped to re-introduce Club Meetings at our Irby Cricket Club H.Q. from the beginning of September 2020 with suitable social distancing in place, and face masks.  (We will qualify requirements nearer the time)


       9th Sept 2020  Our First Club Meeting is hoped to be our "Bi-annual Treasured Items Sale"

(So you have some 8 weeks to clear space in the shack and prepare items for your colleagues !)


As you can imagine there is much to be organised to enable us to adhere to Government rules .. many of which we are coming to realise can change at very short notice, so please bear with us and check here regularly for the latest  up to date position.
