Dorking & District Radio Society

The Future of Amateur Radio - 24th April

Nick Henwood G3RWF, President RSGB

Nick's talk will cover where amateur radio came from, current changes and where it may be going to. This covers the period from his licensing as a schoolboy in the 1960s through to much DXing from Africa in the past decade and, of course his experiences as RSGB President over the past two years.

Nick is also interested in where amateur radio clubs are heading and he will touch on this during his talk. He himself is a member of several clubs:

  • FOC (First Class CW Operators' Club)
  • CDXC (Chiltern DX Club, the UK's premier DX Foundation)
  • RSARS (Royal Signals Amateur Radio Society)
  • the Radio Society of Kenya.
This affords a hint of the breadth of his interests. In addition to the call sign G3RWF, Nick also currently holds the call signs GB4RS, 5Z4LS (Kenya, since 1968) and 5X1NH (Uganda). More information is available on QRZ.COM.

This is an important meeting and we are honoured to welcome the President to Dorking. We look for a well-attended meeting by DDRS members and friends from other clubs. The president's views and concerns are of interest to us all.
