meeting conversations

Hams busy talking – surprise!


We have regular monthly meetings with programs sure to interest you.  An important part of the club is to be a source of help and mentoring for new amateur radio operators. We invite you to join us for a meeting.  Be sure to make yourself known and ask around for any help you may need.

In addition we sponsor exciting events such as Field Day in late June and our annual Hamfest in early August.   In December we celebrate the end of a ham radio season at our Annual Christmas dinner held at a local restaurant.

Go to our Club Information page for details of our activities. You will also find our club Membership Application form.
