Alfa Tango Division England Official Web Site

The main purpose of this web site is to share information about The Alfa Tango Radio Group.

 

What is The Alfa Tango Radio Group?

Alfa Tango is a very well organised international group of  radio operators which was formed over 30 years ago in Asti, Italy. This group has grown to be the biggest and most professional group of it's kind and boasts thousands of members from almost every part of the world. Alfa Tango is the radio group that since March 1978 has promoted friendship through radio waves and as it is very well structured it is the group that many other radio groups follow. Alfa Tango has structured the 11 meter radio band to what it has become today. Alfa Tango was the very first group to arrange international meetings, international & regional/divisional contests, awards & IOTA programs and also publish an international list of members known as "The Directory". Alfa Tango brought about the prefix number structure to make it easy to indentify different countries around the world & this structure is used by almost every 11 meter radio operator in the world. To this day Alfa Tango still organises and runs some of the worlds biggest contests and also DX expeditions from new DXCC entities and most wanted countries and Islands. This group is a big success as it still maintains a "family spirit".
