Radio Society

The Martlesham Radio Society was founded in the distant past of the British Post Office Research facility in the 70s. The Post Office was left behind in the early eighties and now is known as BT plc. The then Radio Society left its old call sign of G4BPO (British Post Office) and took up G4MRS in honour of the change to the Martlesham Radio Society.

About Us

The Club Station

The shack has two permanent 80 foot towers and associated antennas. Transceiver and linear equipment varies according to whatever club members are currently interested in. Most of the more modern equipment is on a loan basis from one or two key members, although the towers are club owned.


The society is active in some national contests (RSGB) with some of its key members taking part in CQ WPX, ARRL 160 and ARRL DX as well as CQWW as G0KPW and M6T.

Microwave Roundtable

The Society supports the annual two-day Microwave Round Table, one of the UK’s premier Microwave Symposiums. In 2009, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of this event.
