We have aV-2000 Tri-band colinear up for VHF/UHF usage and we are on the air on 6m/2m/70cm when we are at the club.

Also, we are going to have 4m station on the air soon where we are doing our part to encourage more activity on the band.

We always welcome new members locally and far and wide! So please don't be shy to come down and say hi, operate in one of our two radio shacks, socialise and have a cup of tea/coffee with a biccy.

We meet *every* Friday night from 7:30pm 'til late! (This includes if it falls in the Easter & Christmas holidays)

North Norfolk Amateur Radio Group
An impressive looking 50-year old home-made amateur station housed at Muckleburgh has been brought back to life by members of the North Norfolk Amateur Radio Group. The station was built by Wing Commander Ieuan Edward Hill G6HL in the 1950's to the highest professional standards and he continued using it until he died in 1997. In 2000, his daughter, Rosemary Cox, donated the equipment to the Group where it has been on static display in the "Radio Hut" at the museum ever since.

When donating the equipment, Mrs Cox wrote: "One of my late Father's dearest wishes was that his radio equipment should be ....used where possible, be learnt from and enjoyed by a future generation." The Group has always intended to honour that wish but pending restoration to full working order the station has been used as a Morse practice desk for visiting children who are shown how to send their names in the code, and awarded certificates for their achievement.

G6HL obtained his first radio receiving licence in 1925, and his first experimental transmitting licence in 1928. His first call was 6HL, becoming G6HL soon after when prefix letters were added to call signs to indicate the country where a station was located. Accompanying the station is an historic collection of QSL cards, dating from 1928 to 1997, recording and confirming the huge number of contacts G6HL made around the world, including many from countries with names that no longer exist.

While the museum was closed during the winter, 2007/2008, members of the Group, led by Bill Ward G4NRE, have been working to finally get the station back on the air. With a lack of written instructions and the great number of knobs, switches, sockets and connecting leads on the equipment, often unmarked, it has not been an easy task but success came on 13th December 2007 when Bill exchanged greetings on 20m with F4EIT using the Group's permanent special event call GB2MC. For those present, it was an exciting and truly memorable occasion hearing this magnificent piece of equipment come back to life.

Further work was needed, however, to make it fully operational and this has now been completed. It is hoped to put the station on the air regularly when the Radio Hut is open to visitors in 2008 and to make many contacts worldwide using both SSB and CW. Unusually the station has SSB capability which was rare in the early 1950s when the mode was only just coming into use in the UK and there can be few, if any, amateur SSB stations of that era still in use. It would be interesting to know of any others are still on the air and their operators are asked to contact G4NRE (who became the Group's new chairman at its AGM in January 2008) to let him know of their existence and arrange a two-way vintage sked!

The Group welcomes new members who have time to spend up to a day a week at Muckleburgh.

The Muckleburgh Collection Open Day & Boot Sale
In collaboration with the management of the Muckleburgh Collection, the North Norfolk Amateur Radio Group is organising a vintage radio / amateur radio boot sale on Sunday 12th September 2010.
