About Us

Our strategic aims are:

  • Training: Bring new people to the hobby by providing training and arrange RSGB exams.
  • Activities: Two regular monthly meetings plus field days.  
  • Radio: Help with construction, Operating and one-to-one tutorials. 
  • Getting involved: Many opportunities for members to participate in all that we do. 

As you would expect, there is an enthusiastic and resourceful Committee to plan and arrange day-to-day activities. The Committee welcomes feedback and suggestions and we try to involve everyone, so far as they are able, to get involved with the club activities. Safety is a primary concern. We have public liability insurance and safety procedures are the responsibility of the Deputy Chair who has professional experience in this field.

One of the strengths of the club is a core of experienced and knowledgeable members who have spent a lifetime in radio – they are friendly, approachable and share their knowledge in a easy going manner. TARG is affiliated to the Radio Society of Great Britain (Affiliation Number: RS211307) and a member of the Essex Repeater Group.

Frequently Asked Questions

Must I join TARG to do a training course? No. Our hope is that candidates are impressed by TARG training and wish to join the club but they are under no obligation to do so.

Can I be a member several radio clubs? Of course, we all have something to offer. (A TARG Committee member cannot be on the Committee elsewhere to prevent a conflict of interest).

Can I come along to have a look around? You are very welcome. The club constitution allows up to 3 free visits and then you would be asked to obtain membership (£20 p.a max – which is a bargain considering everything the club has to offer).
