History of the Dengie Hundred Amateur Radio Society (DHARS)

The Dengie Hundred Amateur Radio Society was started in the summer of 1992, after a leaflet was posted to all local amateurs listed in the RSGB call book. The leaflet invited them to a meeting, with a view of restarting a previous old club. The response was good and a temporary committee was formed, then subsequently an Inauguration Meeting was held in October 1992, when a new Committee and constitution was put into force. The Club first met at a pub in Burnham-on-Crouch, then moved to the Henry Samuel Hall in Mayland. The Henry Samuel Hall fell into disrepair, so around September 2011 the club moved to The Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome in Stow Maries where we obtained the permanent special event callsign GB0SMA. The club remained at the airfield for approximately 3 years.

In September 2014 the club moved to the present site in Latchingdon, which is at a much higher altitude than either of its previous locations.
