IPA Motorcycle Club

The IPA GMC was established in 1999. The club was the brainchild of IPA member Seamus McBride of Tir Chonaill Branch, a motorcyle enthusiast who in the Spring of 1999 gathered together like minded members in Donegal and called a meeting to see what could be done.

He was assisted in the task by another IPA member, Frank Togher and supported by the 1st Vice President of the Association at the time, Joe Lynch who proposed that the IPA National Executive Committee endorse the club as a National IPA Club within this Section. The club was endorsed by unanimous decision of the IPA National Executive Committee and was formally launched as the IPA GMC at the 1999 IPA National Council in Kildare in May 1999.

Since then the Club has grown from strength to strength and is now firmly established throughout the Section with active members, North, South, East and West.

Ham Radio
The Amateur Radio and Computer Club (1997) has been defined as “A service of self training as inter-communication and technical investigation carried out by amateurs who are duly authorised persons interested in radio techniques as a personal aim, without pecuniary interests.”

The members’ aims may be summarised as furthering world peace and friendship. The Association has over 1,000 members registered to the world-wide IPA Amateur Radio Club - colloquially referred to as “Ham Radio”. The Ireland Club has members of all ages, both serving and retired, throughout the Section.

In order to operate an amateur radio station, a licence must be obtained from the Department of Communications. Applicants must pass an examination in basic radio techniques and Regulations governing “Ham” radio broadcasting. On qualifying the student may operate on VHF and higher frequencies. A Morse code standard of twelve words per minute must be attained.

Members of the IPA Ireland Club meet every Thursday at 20.00 hours on the 11.770 Mhz band. The Dublin Club meet at IPA House, 13 Iona Drive, Glasnevin, Dublin 9, on the 144.550 or 144.525 Mhz FM.
