The Appledore and District Amateur Radio Club, which was founded in 1985 is a small but active club with a membership of about 45. It serves a wide area of North Devon and it welcomes all who are interested in amateur radio be they SWL, Foundation, Intermediate or fully certificated. It is affiliated to the RSGB and is also a certified exam centre.

The Appledore Football Club has kindly allowed meetings to be held in their club house which is well fitted out for holding social occasions, has a car park and is on the main road to Appledore.
Unless otherwise stated, Meetings are held at the Appledore Football Social Club, on the third Monday of the month starting at 7.30pm for 8.00pm.
Visitors are always welcome.
The Appledore club's turn to run the RSGB100 special event station was a great success and enjoyed by all who took part. We contacted 586 stations on SSB, 133 on CW, 105 on PSK31, 93 SSB mobile and 24 2m FM.
We will be running the G100RSGB centenary special event station on the 10th and 11th of April 2013. Information on the event can be found here
