Welcome to the Shirehampton A.R.C. web site. Shirehampton is located near the mouth of the river Avon 1 mile from the port of Avonmouth and 5 miles from the city of Bristol. The club holds the callsign GX4AHG and can be heard on both HF & VHF.

The club meets every Friday (except Bank Holidays) from 19:15 at the Signal Station located at “TS Enterprise Sea Cadets” in Station Road. Club members can be found afterwards in the Lamplighters public house just across the road !

The club has excellent training facilities and access to the building and classrooms does not involve any stairs. We also have our own off street parking.

Shirehampton Club is small but very friendly. Many members have a technical background and frequently bring in their latest projects for others to comment on and experiment with. No matter what your interest is within the radio or electronics field someone at Shirehampton ARC will always be willing to discuss it with you. New to amateur radio? From training to licensing, to setting up your equipment for the first time the club is here to help you.

The club runs training courses and we are happy to teach people of any ability, you do not need to have a background in electronics or radio. If you are interested in taking a course or just want to find out more please contact our secretary using this link.
