Amateur Radio Operators are involved in many activities throughout the year. These include:

  • Nets - the club holds 2 nets weekly, giving the chance be on air with others at the same time, and enjoy discussions.  1 net is held on the Flora 146.700 repeater at 8PM, which then is followed by a simplex net.
  • Field Day (A 24 hour event on the last full weekend in June; used to hone skills and demonstrate the hobby to the public)
  • On-Air Contesting ( Events when the goal is to contact as many other stations as possible)
  • Community Support (Hams can use their communications skills to support local community events such as parades and relay races)
  • Disaster Drills (We work closely with area Public Safety agencies to prepare for disasters which may disrupt normal means of communications)
  • License Prep Classes (Best way to learn about ham radio is from a licensed operator, through a class designed to teach you what you need to know to pass you FCC exam)
  • Free VE Testing - Provided several times throughout the year and when requested by those interested in obtaining their Amateur Radio License.
