Christchurch Amateur Radio Society (CARS) is a modest and friendly club in the seaside village of Mudeford (part of Christchurch) in south east Dorset.

The club was formed in 1985 and originally drew its members from the adjacent Siemens Plessey communications/electronics factory and research establishment.

The club is open to anyone with an interest in radio, and we have exceptional facilities (accessible 24/7) including a club room, a dedicated training/practical room, two radio shacks (HF and VHF/UHF/ATV), a kitchen and a storeroom/office. These facilities are accessible by club members at all times. CARS is part of East Christchurch Sports & Social Club with which we share the site. Membership of the Social Club gives access to a bar and other recreational facilities.

Our qualified tutors are available to provide support for members studying at all three levels of the RSGB examinations (Foundation, Intermediate and Full). The club is an RSGB (Radio Society of Great Britain) registered exam centre (DT 63).

Our Clubhouse is accessible for those with mobility impairment (level entry).

If you wish to join us you are welcome to visit on a Thursday evening.
