Welcome

Welcome to the Clubs website.  We trust it gives a fair account of what the club has to offer its members.

Its takes its name from ‘Verulamium’ which was the Roman community in the area of the modern St. Albans, Hertfordshire.  We cannot claim to have originated in Roman times; only fifty years and more ago.

mobile_yagi-50_years_fullThe Club has a strong tradition of attracting members of different ages and diverse backgrounds and prides itself on its success with those who are new to electronics.  It holds monthly meetings for demonstrations, discussions and talks from members and invited speakers.  It has a well-equipped hill-top cabin, high in the Chiltern Hills which enables members to connect their own radio equipment to an impressive multi band antenna array.

VARC operates club nets each week on different bands and an ‘on air’ Morse practice session.  It also participates in contests throughout the year

As well as its regular activities, the Club runs courses and holds examinations for Foundation, Intermediate and Advance level licences.

More information about the clubs activities is given in subsequent pages.
