The content of this site will now be largely historical as a service to all Ham operators. The new club leadership wishes a different site, however they did copy much of the material created for this site onto their new site.

Thanks to Mike, N6MDV, for creating this site and maintaining it for the last 5 years. His vision and leadership initiated the W6HA Hughes Amateur Radio Club web site, its training classes, and skills day to build practical skills. Check back occasionally as new material may be added.

The W6HA Hughes Amateur Radio club is an ARRL affiliated club, open to all amateur radio operators and anyone interested in amateur radio.

The club maintains the repeater W6HA located high above LAX. You are welcome to use the repeater. Also join us on Wednesday evenings at 7:30PM for the weekly club net.

(Located at: 111 W Mariposa Ave, El Segundo, CA 90245) Visitors are always welcome! Pizza and soft drinks are usually available for a nominal fee.

Events and Activities

The club and its members are actively involved in Ham radio technology. We use our equipment and skills to support the community. Beyond the annual outdoors ARRL field day weekend, the club provides health and safety communications for several 10K and ultra marathon races. These build excellent communication skills in sometimes difficult environments. We also support Jamboree on the Air, JOTA an annual event sponsored by Boy Scouts of America and ARRL. We teach Technician Level license classes . And to help the new Hams we follow the classes with a day in the park for Skills Day to build practical skills and try new equipment.

We encourage everyone to join in the fun of amateur radio.
