Welcome to the Bolton Wireless Club ( G8WY / G0BWC / G1ONE )

( Affiliated to the RSGB, RAIBC, & BYLARA )

Winners of the UKAC Club Championship, 2009-12

QSL front

We are a forward-thinking group, with members ranging from G2 to M6 licensees and SWLs, the perfect place to nurture your enthusiasm for all aspects of this fascinating hobby.

After a fifteen-year break the Club was revived in 2007, initially to provide a focus for radio enthusiasts in and around the Bolton area, but by the end of 2009 we had over seventy members from all over the North-West, enjoying a full programme of Club events through the whole year. This continues today, see the Activities pages for more details.

Our Club is a Registered Centre for the Radio Communications Examinations. We have a busy training programme to help our Members progress up the Licensing ladder, and we've already got dozens of them through their exams: see our Training page for details.
