Thank you for visiting the Ayr Amateur Radio Group web site. Founded in 1937 and affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain, Ayr Amateur Radio Group has a long history of being the focus for amateur radio in Ayr and across the county of Ayrshire, Scotland.

The group now meets in ASDA's staff training rooms, Liberator Drive, Ayr on alternate Wednesday evenings between 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm. Visitors and new members are very welcome.

Over the years the group has organised and operated many special event stations at local public events and visitor attractions and has made expeditions to activate local islands on the air, with the aim of helping to promote the local area worldwide. In particular, AARG members have been instrumental in setting up the now highly popular International Lighthouse/Lightship Weekend.

With major changes having taken place in UK amateur radio licensing, the group conducts training courses to assist aspiring Radio Amateurs. More information about amateur radio in the UK may be obtained through our useful links page.



The club has a net that runs every Sunday on 145.450 FM. The net usually starts around 1930hrs. All callers (and listeners) are welcome.

We also have a net that runs every day on 7.050MHz +/- QRM The net usually starts around 1015hrs, on CW intially and switching to SSB later. All welcome (especially on CW!)
