Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby and volunteer public service that uses designated radio frequencies for non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communications.
Amateur Radio is the only hobby governed by international treaty.
As a radio amateur you are able to transmit radio signals on a number of frequency bands allocated specifically to the radio amateurs.
Radio amateurs make use of their frequencies in a number of ways:
There is no better way to explore the fascinating world of radio communications than by becoming a radio amateur.
Whilst the Internet has brought us instant world-wide email, VOIP and video communication, it is tied to an infrastructure of enormous proportions.
With Amateur Radio, you are communicating directly, “point-to-point” with no intermediate infrastructure. You are also communicating with people in their cars, on ships, on remote islands, and in under-developed parts of the world. But perhaps more importantly, Amateur Radio is not just about communicating — it’s about exploring the technology that makes radio communication work — the electronics, the antennas, the propagation characteristics of the ionosphere, and even computers that are linked to radio equipment for all sorts of purposes including specialised modes of communication, station logging, propagation prediction, etc. And most of all is making friends World Wide , why not vist our club and take a look around , you are welcome any time !!
Sheffield ARC are delighted to hear from the general public or our members in relation to any matter regarding the club, whether it’s about our club nights, training courses, events, general information or any other enquiry!

PLEASE NOTE: Recent Events which have yet to be sorted out have meant that Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is now using a new club call sign M0RCU. in all of it it's contesting and club activities. This is an excellent opportunity for us to take up a new call sign following our recent overhaul of the club and represents a new beginning for a club dedicated to the present and the future needs of Amateur Radio operators in the Sheffield area.Although still very mindful of the history of over 80 years presence in Sheffield, Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is a forward thinking progessive club with a strong active membership.
.With respect to all of our GX3RCM supporters and sponsors, the GX3RCM call sign will remain for the time being as just the brand name for the promotional work that Sheffield Amateur Radio Club is committed to. The identity of the communications trailer will always be that of the GX3RCM Radio Communications Module as we are legally allowed to. The GX3RCM Trust has been established to develop further our activities in our very positive promotional work not just in Sheffield but Worldwide.
A young totally inexperienced team from SARC has had a great start to the 2014 UKACC contest organised by the Radio Society of Great Britain VHF contesting committee. The team is a healthy mix of older experienced radio Amateurs and young newly Licensed Amateurs who not only have had little experience of general operating but have never obviously competed at contest level.
Great Fun is being had by all members of the team in the participation of this competition and much is being learned about the fine art of contesting both at operating technique level and equipment level. There are currently 89 UK clubs taking part many keen contest groups. The club should have done this years ago. now we have a new out look to the hobby and thing have changed for the better with members enjoying taking part , this will be carried over to 2015/16
WE ARE CURRENTLY POSITIONED 5th Overall in the country.
Hi to all, Talking about contesting, first well done to all our members for their contribution and dedication to their club for taking part in the VHF RSGB club contests, it's a disappointment that the club did not do this many years ago.
We have very quickly started in 2014 to build up a very effective contest team.The club team members understand that it's not just contesting that makes a club it's the people and the camaraderie that develops when a group of people enjoy working together to develop and practice their operating skills. All memebers of the club can take part in this activity if they wish and it's our first priority to help members who have never had the chance to be active in this rewarding part of the hobby., SARC will be taking part in many more contests this year.
Our members will be carring on with contester for them that wish to take part and is leading the newly formed contesting team for 2014/15 who are rapidly getting upto speed and performing well in the 2014 UKACC competition.This is the first year that many in the team have been encouraged and given direction in this fascinating part of the hobby.
As some of the contesters that was taking part have now moved on from the club it’s very sad that this as happened, the team was achieving good scores for the club , and working as a team and at the same time building their confidence up taking part in the ukac Contests, but like we all know it’s taking part that is the main thing of a club, and enjoying and what that brings to a club!! (Working Together) That’s what it’s all about good times!! For all
