The Scunthorpe Amateur Radio Club was formed in the early 1950's and meetings were initially held at the home of G3CCH. As the membership grew, the club then moved to the Talbot Inn where meetings were held every fortnight. In those days there were only four licensed hams in the town, G3CCH G3AMM G3HRP and G3HLR. Later G3JWR G3KNP and G3KNU were licensed.

After several successful years G3MSB joined the club. He was a member of the Territorial Army (TA) and was instrumental in obtaining us a hut behind the TA centre in Cottage Beck Road. This was for our own use, which gave us the freedom to do many things we had previously wanted to. We had a field next to the hut where we had an antenna so we could have our own station. The only drawback was that we could not get an alcoholic drink.

After a few years the club then moved to the Railway Social Club. Later we moved to the Hobbies Club where we had the use of a lecture room and a shack. We also had a 50ft tower which supported many beams. Here the membership grew so much that we had to turn people away. Sadly after many good years the numbers went down, and as the rent was gradually increased it was no longer possible to remain there.

About 1997 we moved to our present location. Here we have the use of the conference room, the facilities of a bar, and plenty of room for antennas when we operate in field days. The clubs HQ is also an Examination Centre. We always welcome new members and encourage people interested in the hobby to call in to see what we do.
