SDRS is a club for radio amateurs (aka radio hams) and all those interested in radio or radio related technology.
The society usually meets on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month with a break during August.
Activities include talks, visits, activity evenings and putting on special event (demonstration) stations often using the club callsign of GX0SOA (or G0SOA). We also have an active and successful contest group who use the club contest callsign of M2H.

Our normal venue is the Home Guard Club, Tiddington near
Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England. -
Location map but events marked '#' in the programme may be held elsewhere.
Further details of the society can be obtained from the chairman or any other comittee memeber, see this page for details
