Amateur Radio in Kenya

Amateur Radio has been in existence in Kenya since 1933, when it was initially a part of the Radio Society of East Africa (RSEA). In 1973, the RSEA split into the Amateur Radio Society of Kenya (ARSK later renamed Radio Society of Kenya – RSK), the Tanzania Amateur Radio Club (TARC) and the Uganda Amateur Radio Society (UARS).

The Radio Society of Kenya (RSK) seeks to promote & develop amateur (Ham) radio to advance the art & science of radio & its public service role in Kenya, and is open to all those interested.

Over the years the society has been involved in numerous activities supporting personal, civilian and national activities. These include, but are not limited to:

  • The East African Safari Rally
  • Emergency services such as the train derailment
  • Jamboree on the Air (JOTA)
  • School membership
  • …and others
