Crawley Amateur Radio Club

The club is based at hut 18, Tilgate Forest Recreation Centre — the one with the big aerial outside. It meets twice each week on:

  • Wednesdays from 19:30 (formal meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month)
  • Sundays from 10:30.

The club provides access to hundreds of magazines, tools, broadband internet access, and many types of radio rigs. It runs a radio station, GX3WSC, which is active from VLF through to 23 cm.

Crawley Amateur Radio Club is a registered training centre for Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced licence examinations of the Radio Society of Great Britain, and assists the RSGB in its annual meeting at the Gatwick Worth Hotel.
