Saturday 19th May.

70th Anniversary Dinner - It is the West Kent Amateur Radio Society's seventieth anniversary in 2018. The club was formed in April 1948. In 1988 we enjoyed a fortieth anniversary dinner at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells, and I am pleased to be able to tell you that the committee, supported by the members has decided to repeat that experience.

We have booked the beautiful Orangery at the Spa Hotel for the evening of Saturday, 19 May 2018. This room has large windows looking out over the hotel grounds, its own lounge area and a private bar. We have booked a special guest of honour who is a past President of the RSGB, and who has past connections with West Kent ARS. In addition we hope to have other special guests present.

Members and friends of West Kent ARS have been invited to reserve their places for this occasion and bookings are already being taken. Anyone not yet contacted by the Society and who would like to join us at this anniversary celebration should email

This really will be a gala event marking an important milestone in WKARS history. 

Best regards

Dave, G4OTV
