Welcome to Mid-Sussex Amateur Radio Society

The President's View

Ken G3WYNI am an old time radio amateur still on the air every day of the week. I believe that Amateur Radio has a magic attached to it in allowing simple equipment to be used to communicate with people of all races throughout the world.

My own involvement dates back now for more than 60 years and my philosophy is to attempt to pass this magic on to young and old who wish to become involved.

I believe that the MSARS of which I am proud to be President, should use every opportunity to put the Society’s name forward over the air and by all other means to promote our aims, to gain much needed publicity, and to draw attention to this wonderful hobby we all enjoy.
