Welcome to the HFDXARC website
The Club was founded 13 years ago and began life-based at Fort Paull, having in excess of 30 members on the books. The Club is very active on field days including Light Houses OTA done from the Spurn Point wildlife preserve, and SOS weekend supporting the RNLI who are also based at Spurn.
The Club changed location from Fort Paull on the 18th of May 2019 to the new location of The Mill House at Patrington East Yorkshire. The Mill House was reformed by the club members and fitted internally to suit the club, which included structural and electrical work and was a massive challenge to complete in such a short period of time.
The Club has its own training facilities where many members have been taught and progressed to achieve either Intermediate or Full License status. Local schools and events were also visited where small mobile stations were set up to help the community interact and understand the science and fun surrounding Ham Radio.
Contests are also an integral part of the club where we have achieved superb results. CQWW is the biggest event of the year, and in 2022 the Club achieved a new record in recording close to 3 million points.
As with many Clubs, Covid knocked us for six and we sadly lost 2 members during that period. The “Stay at home” also meant the Club was not getting used or heated which has led to severe damage to the equipment the club worked so hard to buy and source. Repairs have been carried out however the damage has been done and leaves the club with very expensive and constant repairs in keeping us operational. We continue to operate but are under a heavy workload of repairs and replacement items.
We need help with funding, so we may continue to be a major asset to both Ham and local communities. The club has now opened its membership to include reduced rates for nonregional members along with a Digital membership. (See below)
May the Hobby continue to grow and thrive throughout the world because there is nothing that comes close to the enjoyment had by every station through Ham Radio
