Railways On The Air

Meirion Amateur Radio Society

Railways On The Air


This celebration is not a contest. We organise this so that radio amateurs have a good time and promote Amateur Radio while helping to celebrate the unique position railways hold in our national heritage.

If you would like to take part by running a station, approach your nearest preserved railway, ask if they are celebrating the birth of passenger railways in this country and would they like to have an Amateur Radio Station as part of their event to promote awareness of their railway.

Tell them about the QSL card and how it could be of benefit to them, they may even provide a picture and help with the cost of printing.

Once you have their agreement, apply for a special license in the usual way with OFCOM. Please leave plenty of time for this application to be published.
