Essex Ham have just launched their 2017 amateur radio survey, to get a snapshot of an aspect of the hobby. This year, the theme is ‘Amateur Radio Clubs’, with the aim of finding out the following:

  • What do today’s amateurs expect from a radio club?
  • What services offered by clubs are most valued?
  • What do you expect from an amateur radio club’s website?
  • Are members happy with what they’re getting from their club?

This follows some recent debate in one of the RSGB discussion groups, where discussion of the role of clubs was a hot topic.

If you have a spare two minutes, we’d appreciate you taking their 2017 survey. The final results will be released in March, although they will be publishing updates now and again over the coming weeks.

What do you want from your club…field days, a newsletter, more Nets, or better speakers at social nights? Let them know


You don’t need to be a member of a club to take part, and you don’t have to be in Essex. If you are in Essex, you’ll be asked a couple of extra questions, to help us get a better picture of what amateurs want from their local clubs.
