Radio Club 65yrs Young

BALLYMENA Amateur Radio Club has been transmitting since 1947 and last week they were officially recognised by Ballymena Borough Council for their 65 years of service to the community.

Last Wednesday night members of the club were invited to the Mayor’s parlour to be presented with a plague for their achievement. Chairman Aubrey Kincaid gave a short speech to Mayor Hubert Nicholl explaining the club’s history.

The club was officially first started back in 1947, by local enthusiasts and ex-servicemen. However it’s thought a club was broadcasting from as far back as 1929.
