British Railways Amateur Radio Society (BRARS)


New-look 'Rails and Radio' magazine

BRARS   PR 22-01   New Look Rails and Radio


BRARS (the British Railways Amateur Radio Society) is delighted to announce the arrival of its new-look Rails and Radio magazine. The magazine now has more pages, more articles, more columns and more photos than its recent predecessors and will be published regularly every quarter.


The new look came about due to the retirement of the long-standing editor. A new editor was needed and so Ian Brothwell G4EAN and Richard Waterman G4KRW jointly took on the role of editor. They had to start with a clean sheet and decided to make Rails and Radio more of a magazine and less of a newsletter.


The January 2022 issue of Rails and Radio is their first new-look issue. It indeed has a colourful look and lots of photos and articles. More significantly, it has more pages than the total of all the issues published in 2021. The April 2022 issue is well in hand and will soon be posted to every BRARS member.


Membership of BRARS is open to anyone interested in any aspect of amateur radio (whether licensed or listening) and in any aspect of railways (by which we mean any rail transport so, yes, we include trams, miniature railways, model railways and suchlike).
