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

Winners of the UKAC Club Championship, 2009-12 & 15

( Now located at Ladybridge Community Centre, Beaumont Drive, BOLTON, BL3 4RZ )

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



Due to the recent announcement by the PM, there will be no further meetings of the Club at the Ladybridge CC until further notice.

So with this in mind it's been decided that meetings will be held on Zoom

and a club net will be held on the other Mondays, listen out for a committee member putting a call out on 145.500 at 19.30.

We also have regular club nets on:-

23cm on Wednesdays on 1297.5 NBFM at 8.15 till approx 10pm
Topband on weekdays on 1.953 LSB at 16.30 till about 17.15.

Coffee morning net on 4m FM 11.15-12.00am
