History
The club has been in existence in its present form since 1990 and had been located at the Bamford and Fiedhouse Cricket Club since 1997. Because of the devastating fire at the Cricket Club we moved to a temporary venue, the Cemetery Hotel, Bury Road and in 2011 we moved to our new location at the Norden Old Library. The club callsign G0ROC was allocated in March 1992 and is now well known on the VHF bands particularly during contests. Current membership includes both licensed amateurs and short wave listeners whose interests range from Vintage Radios, Slow and Fast Scan TV, Satellite Communication, Computers, Microwaves, QRP and Home Built Equipment to Photography.The club is also 'twinned' with the Amateur Radio Society of Winchester (Virginia, USA), WA4RS
