What We Do

We enjoy talking to the world as well as local friends.

We assist the community during times of emergency as well during public events.

We teach new prospective hams how to become licensed, operate radios and enjoy the hobby.

Members enjoy learning and experimenting with all kinds of new technology.

AND WE HAVE FUN DOING IT!

Operating

Our twice monthly meetings begin at 7:30 PM with our HF station ON THE AIR. Members and guests are welcome to make round the world contacts with our top of the line equipment. We provide operating procedure training to new hams who are developing new on the air skills.

Kit Building

Twice a year we devote a series of meetings to building a kit or homebrew project of your own choosing. Antennas, radios, even LED signs are part of our building fun. We teach new hams how to solder.

Field Day
