Meetings have been suspended for the foreseeable future to comply with the ‘Social Distancing’ requirements. We are considering a ‘Club Net’ for the dates and times listed for club meetings below. We are consulting members to see if they would prefer a VHF or HF net. Details will be posted here shortly.
Welcome to the Glenrothes and District Amateur Radio Club web site.
We thank you for taking the time to browse our site, and hope you will find it of interest. Perhaps we will meet you at one of our events throughout Fife, or even at our Club meetings, where you will find a warm welcome and hopefully persuade you to become a Radio Amateur and member of our Club. For information on how to join get in touch via the form on the contact page
