Welcome to the web pages of Blackwood and District Amateur Radio Society GW6GW. We are located at Islwyn High School (Oakdale site) in the village of Oakdale near the town of Blackwood in South Wales. We hold our club meetings on Friday evenings during school terms from 1900 to 2100 local time. Activities within the club include Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced and Morse classes, video shows and various special events throughout the year which include rally, BBQ, field activities, Mills on the air and more. As the school is closed during the summer months due to school holidays we change venues from mid July to September by holding our meetings at Gelligroes Mill Pontllanfraith with the kind permission of the owner Mr David Constable.
Please visit our Local History page for details of The Mill.
If you are interested in becoming a Radio Amateur or if you are just interested in communications in general then pop along to the school and we will point you in the right direction.
