About SARTS

The Singapore Amateur Radio Transmitting Society (SARTS) in its present form was established on 26 August 1968. Today the society has around 60 members. SARTS is a member society of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU), Region 3 Asia Pacific.

Our objectives – among others – are

  • To promote general advancement of science and practice of radio communication.
  • To facilitate the exchange of information and ideas of these subjects among its members.
  • To hold meetings for the reading and discussion of technical papers.
  • To enter into negotiations with the licensing authority in Singapore in all matters affecting the terms of licenses issued to members

We do not have any full or part time staff. SARTS is run entirely by volunteers, who hold full-time jobs elsewhere. The society does not have a club house or office.
