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.
