The only Amateur Radio Society in Sheffield to offer FREE membership with great talks, events, venue & training…

Welcome to the website of the Sheffield & District Wireless Society. According to newspaper archives, the society has established roots dating back as early as 1912, so in name it is the oldest Amateur Radio Society in Sheffield. The Society was disbanded in 1926 and reformed as Sheffield Amateur Radio Club. Nine decades later, in October 2013, saw many members leave to reform S&DWS, bringing with them a very long wealth of history and knowledge. After an electric and positively charged meeting, Sheffield Wireless was reborn offering a very relaxed, different and refreshing set of membership aims and objectives.

The kind generosity of our hosts at The Rutland Hotel means we are able to offer FREE membership and no subscriptions. All we ask is you buy a drink or two from the bar, and perhaps a snack or an evening meal as some members regularly choose to enjoy. This should be a huge welcome to new members who are interested in getting involved in amateur radio, who want to take up training for Foundation, Intermediate and Full License, enjoy our lectures and social nights, or typically, become a part of our strong and vibrant contesting team where we do have a strong recent history of being at the top of the league tables.

Feel free to visit our website and Facebook promotional page, or better still, come along to one of our Society meetings, talks or events where a very warm welcome awaits. Do come and join us on in our Member’s Hub where most of our daily activity takes place. There are no member fees to join the society, just bring yourselves along, your ideas and together we can enjoy a great hobby!
