The Cambridge University Wireless Society (CUWS) is the amateur radio club of the University of Cambridge, England.[1]

CUWS is one of the oldest still active radio clubs in the United Kingdom. It was founded on 13 October 1920[2] and its call sign has since 1932 always been G6UW. The society operates a radio shack outside Cambridge and frequently enters amateur radio contests such as CQWW in both the single-sideband modulation (SSB) and carrier wave (CW) category. The society also holds the call sign M4A[3] for use in certain contests.

Some notable ex-members are Maurice Wilkes and Ernest Rutherford.[citation needed]
