The Club crest was designed and constructed by the late Kevin Freeny EI9BMB.  It is a table mount shield  in full colour 18 inches dia. This reproduction is a digital photograph and the emblem is used on our Club stationery. The crest depicts the 3 castle gates of the old Dublin City walls on fire (fire representing the zeal of the defenders).
The raven is the emblem of North County Dublin, and is of Viking origin.

The North Dublin Radio Club was founded in 1973 as the north city developed and expanded.  The first meeting place or "radio shack" was at the back of the Esso Service Station at the Artane Roundabout.  In later years the Club met in the premises of the Irish Wheelchair Association Clontarf.  Since 1992 the Club enjoys the use of extensive facilities in Chanel College.

The Club maintains and operates High Frequency (short wave) and VHF transmitters using a full size G5RV antenna. On VHF/UHF we have both vertical and Yagi beam antennae.

Morse and radio theory courses are available for members, and newcomers, wishing to obtain a Radio Experimenters License.
Morse is no longer a requirement to access HF (short wave) bands as of 2003.

A library of radio related material is maintained by the Club.  The contents are useful to both the beginner and experienced alike, containing material on most aspects of radio, including construction projects on receivers, transmitters and antennae.  Information on component data and source reference manuals are available. Current and back issues of popular radio magazines are available to view.  Non members are welcome to use the library.


Call in to the NDR net on 145.575mHz every Monday night at 22:30hrs. All are welcome to join in or get a signal report
