QSL Card


Are you a former member of Aston University Radio Society ?

If so, you will have operated either G3UOA or G8PGM in your time. (QRZ.COM)


G8CQH is compiling this page in memory of the Aston '"Rad. Soc." Alumni

Please sign in; i.e. send him an email with your sojourn details.


The Radio Society has long ceased to operate and the Shack NR5 has been given over to use by the nearby Language Department.

Aerials still visible on the roof are lying! 

The two masts were activated with a 160m Windom between them, on March 17/18/19, 2011

Phil Cadman, G4JCP and I have decided it's time to write something about the masts.

If you can offer an anecdote, do please make contact.
