From Electromagnetic Field 2022

Hello, we're the "Amateur Radio Village", also known as the EMF Hams. We're a handful of radio amateurs spread across the country that occasionally get together to play with radios, usually at EMF. Some of us have been going since 2012!

Anyone is welcome to join us or say hello, even if you're not a radio amateur you'll probably find something to talk to us about. Interests range from Real Ale to Eurovision, and occasionally we do some radio.

EMF Hams is registered as a club and has callsign Gx1EMF. We will be using it during EMF 2022 and welcome contacts! Our logbook for contacts will be here


A non-exhaustive list of village inhabitants. Name can be whatever you prefer to be called by. If you're bringing something cool like a radio or something communally useful like a kettle stick it in the "Bringing" Column. We don't need to know about your socks

If you want your name added to the list but don't want to edit the wiki, give us a shout.
