This is a new group of radio amateurs and shortwave listeners at the BBC, which has an amateur radio heritage dating back to 1946. We are an independent group, hosted by BBC Engineering. Our new radio shack is at the top of Broadcasting House and was officially opened on 18th October 2017 by BBC Director General Lord (Tony) Hall.

We now have 45 members, some of whom you will have seen or heard on BBC TV and Radio, or who are working behind the scenes in various programme and engineering departments. We have a range of membership categories covering permanent, freelance, and retired staff. We are on the air as often as our shifts allow: HF bands 80m to 10m, and VHF 2m.

We have rigged a bent HF dipole and a VHF vertical on the roof of Broadcasting House in central London.
