50th anniversary for Radio Fraternity

Radio Fraternity Lodge No. 8040 was formed in London in 1965 by one time Radio Society of Great Britain General Manager John Clarricoats, OBE, with many leading radio amateurs of the day who were also Freemasons

Radio Fraternity Lodge still meets four times a year in London's Freemasons' Hall in Great Queen Street, and has always been principally composed of RSGB members. The lodge has raised thousands of pounds for charity in its fifty years of existence. Groups such as the Radio Communications Foundation, Radio Amateur Invalid and Blind Club and British Wireless for the Blind have received donations, as have many other charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Dreamflight Charity and Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

In its 50th anniversary year, the lodge has decided to reach out to other amateur radio Freemasons and establish links with other masonic amateur radio groups, individuals or even those wanting to become Freemasons, both in the UK and internationally. The intention is to grow amateur radio activity on air and celebrate our formation fifty years ago.
