Welcome to RAF Waddington Amateur Radio Club

This is the website of the RAF Waddington Amateur Radio Club, based at the Pyewipe Inn, Lincoln, England.

We are a group of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience, all with a shared passion for everything radio! Not sure what amateur radio is? Find out all about it at the Radio Society of Great Britain.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and look forward to meeting you on a club night or on the air.

Next event: Talk by Bob, G3VCA: 8pm 19th April 2024, Clock Room, Pyewipe Inn

Our chairman, Bob, G3VCA will be giving a talk on 19th April entitled “Tanks, NASA and Magnetic Anomaly”. Please note that this talk will be held in the Clock Room in the Pyewipe Inn and NOT in the shack, and will start at 8 pm. Members please join us for what promises to be an interesting talk!

Spring arrives at the Pyewipe shack

Members of RAF Waddington ARC took advantage of improved weather conditions to carry out some work at the shack at the Pyewipe Inn recently. The club doublet had previously been taken down, so that it would not be damaged during other necessary works at the site; following these the antenna was refurbished and replaced by Bob, G3VCA and Chris 2E0BMA.

Talk by Steve, M3FKH, 16th February 2024

Steve’s talk, “The Speccy Geek” - sub-titled “The making of a home computer and a software engineer” - was a fascinating sequel to Andy’s excellent talk on all things Sinclair last month.
