The Flight Refuelling Amateur Radio Society (FRARS) was founded in 1982 by employees of Flight Refuelling (Now Cobham PLC). The Society is an affiliated member of the Radio Society of Great britain (RSGB).

The club has a variety of members with wide-ranging interests. There are members who contest on every band from DC to light, and groups who just enjoy the company of like-minded people that can be found at the club.

There is also interest at both extremes of the radio spectrum with members who are interested in microwave and members interested in LF operation.

In recent years club members have taken an interest in computing and the internet. Computing and especially wireless networking is now becoming a part of the radio hobby and is embraced at FRARS.

The club meets every Wednesday and Sunday evening in the club house at 19:30 for 20:00. Wednesdays begin with a short announcement of what has been happening with the club and any news, Sundays are a social night where people just come to chat.

The club facilities are available every club night for members to use.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a member or who just wants to know "Hey! What's this all about?" is more than welcome on either of the club nights where they will receive a warm welcome.
