Welcome to Chesham and District Amateur Radio Society (CDARS)

We are a group of diverse and enthusiastic amateurs in the Chesham, Amersham, Berkhamsted, Tring and surrounding area (45kms north west of London).

We have two club callsigns, G3MDG and G1MDG, which regularly get an airing on HF and VHF.

Our interests in amateur radio include everything from HF & VHF contesting, Data Modes, Morse, WAB and Summits On The Air.

We engage in a number of contests across HF and VHF, see our Contests page.

We support training for both the Foundation and Intermediate Amateur Radio Licence exam – see our Training page.

We also run weekly Morse Code practice sessions on the 6m band – see our Slow Morse page.


We hold face-to-face meetings at our club venue, Ashley Green Memorial Hall, on the fourth Wednesday of each month. We hold less formal meetings in the local pub in Ashley Green, The Golden Eagle, on the second Wednesday of each month. We also hold club nets on  GB3TU the Tring UHF repeater on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. On months with five Wednesdays we hold an online meeting via Zoom, often featuring a talk from the RSGB library.

Some club meetings are recorded and published on our YouTube channel.
