frg logoThe Folkestone Repeater Group is a totally independent non-profit group, we provide FM, Data and Digital repeaters to allow Radio Amateurs to communicate in our area, we now also have a dedicated Network Radio Channel on Zello, you can find out more information here.

If you are interested in becoming a Radio Amateur visit The Dover Radio Club  and view the training page.

Everyone from the group is interested in supporting repeaters in the Folkestone, Hythe, Romney Marsh and Ashford areas, all group members give their time freely and we do not receive any funding from any other body. We have no committee and no formal structure, anyone is free to suggest ideas but overall decisions are down to the respective registered repeater keeper.
