* Notice of PL Tone Change *

The W7AIA 443.900+ Yaesu DR-1 C4FM Fusion repeater on Larch Mountain changed PL tones on 2 October to align with the other CCARC/W7AIA family of repeaters.  It is now set to 94.8. 

It is configured to be used as “tone” for normal use or “tone squelch” on the same 94.8 tone for those that wish to run tone squelch on their receive side.

 


  

2015 Amateur Radio License Classes

starting to queue up!

 

 

 

 

Amateur radio offers opportunities for fun, education, and public service.  You need a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to transmit.  The license allows you use a wide variety of frequency bands that provide different communication options.  After tornados and hurricanes, amateur radio operators (also called hams) often provide communications for their community until phone and other services are restored.

 

In 2015, we will be offering both "open" and "YL only" classes. For more information, click here.

 

 


  

Veteran’s Day Parade Coming Up!

The 28th Annual Fort Vancouver Veteran’s Day Parade is coming up on November 8th.  The Clark County Amateur Radio Club will be supporting communications for the event again this year for the 16th year in a row. This is a great time to help honor our local troops and veterans each year and gain valuable radio communications experience.  So whether you are an experienced at event communications or not, we need you. 

For more information about this annual event such as the event flyer, route and communication stations, click here.     

Please make time available on your schedule to support this important event.  To volunteer, send an email to vetsdayparade@w7aia.org and Larry/W7HGC will put you on the list.  If you have a favorite station that you supported in the past, put that in your request.
