Since our first meeting in January 2002 the group has continued to further amateur
radio attracting people from Mablethorpe and the surrounding area. Being a holiday
resort we often get visitors from various parts of the country drop in to say hello
and attend our meetings on a regular basis. The meetings are made up of people of
both sexes from all walks of life who have a common interest in radio and family
and friends are always welcome. Our aim is to have fun whilst still partaking in
the hobby of Amateur radio and there are no membership or meeting fees. We meet every

Our Monthly meetings cover a broad spectrum of subjects not just radio and our programme of events are listed on this site. During 2002 the Radio Society of Great Britain introduced a new way into Amateur Radio for those wishing to get involved in the hobby but not yet ready to take the full Radio Amateurs Examination. The Foundation Licence is the first step into amateur radio and the training for this licence can be undertaken by local radio groups who have a registered qualified instructor. The course covers the basics on how to operate amateur radio equipment, fundamental radio theory, aerials, safety and legal requirements. On successfully passing the Foundation Course and obtaining a licence with a call sign starting with the prefix M6, the student can move on to the next step of gaining the Intermediate Licence leading on to eventually taking the Advanced Radio Amateurs Examination. The Eagle Radio Group were quick to take the initiative of setting up and running some of the first Foundation Courses in the country and it has been a big success. The M3& M6 licence holders are now the largest individual group within the Eagle radio Group.
If you are in the area why not call in and see us, you will be made very welcome.
