The Blackmore Vale Amateur Radio Society (callsigns – G4RBV and G7SBV) was formed in 1982 by like-minded radio enthusiasts who found that within the area of North Dorset, South Somerset and South Wiltshire, there was no facility or forum for them to share their hobby. The society grew out of this need, and also the desire to “promote all aspects of Amateur Radio and to assist members to obtain licensed status”, as the constitution states.
Today, the Blackmore Vale Amateur Radio Society has a membership that covers a wide range of occupations and walks of life, and also many interests and aspects within Amateur Radio (and a few outside of it!) are represented within the society.
All visitors are welcome to the weekly meetings; experienced, novice, and even the ‘just inquisitive’ will be sure of a friendly welcome and any assistance or information that we can offer.
The Blackmore Vale Amateur Radio Society is also fully affiliated to the national body of Amateur Radio, the Radio Society of Great Britain.
