Club Nights

Our popular club nights used to take place on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm in the function room at the Village Community Club on Bickershaw Lane, Wigan WN2 5TE. A licensed bar was available and members could meet up and socialise in a family friendly atmosphere.

Training sessions were run for those aspiring to become a licenced amateur or wishing to further their knowlegde in persute of a full licence. HF equipment was also available for use with our club callsign MOLSW when evening band conditions were favourable.

There was also an opportunity to brush up your CW (Morse code) with keys on hand, talk tech with fellow members or experiment with a spot of 'homebrew' equipment building.

On occasion guest speakers were invited to talk on Amateur Radio related subjects and our own members often gave presentations on the latest happenings in an effort to drag the rest of us kicking and screaming into the 21st century!

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus and the current government legislation regarding it all face to face meetings have been suspended so please keep an eye on our website for further information or feel free to use the Contact Us link on the left.


Many of our members hold a regular rag chew every Monday night at 8pm and frequency usually (430.875Mhz GB7HN - leigh repeater) does vary so if you cannot catch the SlarcNet on air check our Facebook page or contact us and we can let you know details of the next one.

Anyone can contribute to the conversation on SlarcNet. If you are an amateur in range residing in or around South Lancashire you are more than welcome. You do not have to be a South Lancs ARC member to join in.

Social Activities

At some (weather permitting) point in the summer months we hold a club barbecue where members, friends, family -and sometimes strangers- enjoy a drink, a bite to eat and pleasant company.

Hot Pot suppers and quiz nights have been known to appear on the list of social activities before today!


As well as attending many rallies in the area we also hold our own Winter Rally in December each year. Details are published here, on our Facebook page and made available to other local clubs and organisations nearer the time.

Field Days and Special Events

Now club membership is growing to a respectable size we are planning to resume attending and promoting at Field Days and special events again.

Events such as club camps and ROTA (Railways On The Air) can take a lot of planning so everyone taking part contributes to the organising to help share the load. This ensures everyone enjoys themselves and guarantees we are able to promote the hobby of Amateur Radio and its many facets to the full in a professional manner.
