Welcome to Mid-Sussex Amateur Radio Society

We are a group of local radio amateurs who meet at 7.45pm each Friday evening at Cyprus Hall in Burgess Hill West Sussex where we have a fully equipped radio shack allowing communications worldwide.

You can learn how to become an efficient radio operator and how to make your signals reach the far corners of the globe or chat to the astronauts on the International Space Station when available.

If you would like to obtain an amateur radio licence, we are registered to provide training courses qualifying you to obtain a transmitting licence. Read More......
