We organise two
Rallies each year.
The Red Rose Winter Rally
February, and the Red Rose Summer Rally in August. Both are popular events in the area and attract
amateurs from as far afield as the south coast. They have a wide variety of services to amateurs including a very popular Bring and Buy
to the West Manchester Radio Club website. Here we hope to provide
you with an insight into the day to day activities of our club, which is based North West of the city of Manchester and is a registered satellite centre for the RSGB examinations.
Take a look at our Constitution Here, and our history Here.

With great sadness, we have to announce that Arthur G0OHY became a silent key on 31st August.
He was an essential and very active member of West Manchester Radio Club and always at the core of all our activities. His 'first up the mast' attitude helped spur on the activity at our members outdoor events.
His 2m activity on S23 is legendary.
Amateurs astounded at the performance he achieved with his equipment. His anicdotes from his billboard days facinated and his geographical knowledge was like having satellite navigation on your ham radio.
Rest well good friend. Difficult shoes to fill.
