Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby and volunteer public service that uses designated radio frequencies for the non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communications.

Edgware and District Radio Society is one of the oldest clubs of its kind in London. It was formed in 1937 by a group of local enthusiasts as the Edgware Short Wave Society which later changed to the present day name of the Edgware and District Radio Society (EDRS). Our callsign, G3ASR, is very well known and always sought after in the various contests we often participate in.
We have been meeting at the Watling Community Centre for well over 40 years.
Hasu, EDRS Chairman addressing members at a meeting
All our members are licenced to operate radio stations to talk with fellow enthusiasts across town, around the world, or even into space.
However, we welcome anyone who has an interest in radio and isn’t licenced. Most of our members started that way!
