Amateur Radio is a great hobby that helps to bring people together, learn about technology, make new friends, and have fun with radio.

Essex Ham is dedicated to supporting Amateur Radio. On our website, you’ll find information on what ham radio has to offer, help and advice for radio amateurs and clubs across the UK, and for those in the Essex area, a list of activities and local clubs.

If you’re new to the hobby, we can help you get started – we’ve helped over 10,000 newcomers with our free online course that runs twice a month, offering a convenient way to get your first callsign and licence. We also provide help, support and discussion groups for existing UK amateurs. We’re also one of the largest UK clubs!

What is Essex Ham?

It’s our mission to help people discover what amateur radio has to offer, and to support the various local clubs and groups. We want to see amateur radio grow, and here are our three guiding aims:

  1. Promote: Explaining Amateur Radio, raising awareness, and encouraging people to get involved
  2. Support: Offering help and advice to new radio amateurs, and to amateur radio clubs.
  3. Share: Supporting the various amateur radio activities, clubs and training in Essex and beyond.



 What We Do:

Spreading the word about Amateur Radio is key to what we do. Here are some of the ways that we’re helping to support and promote the hobby:
