Walk and Knock Event - Dec 5th !


Walk and Knock is the food drive held during the first weekend in December. Contact Barbara at AC7UH@ARRL.NET or Rick at AE7VP@ARRL.NET if you can help.


We need about 5 more operators for Saturday 12/5, known as Drive Day.


We will station radio operators with Area Captains at some 40 locations in the morning to pass information to the event headquarters at the Clark County Food Bank. If you can attend the volunteer breakfast at 6:30 a.m. there will be free food and a change to meet your area captain before you go to your location.


We will need another 5 hams to help with late and missed food pickups

on Sunday 12/6 and Monday 12/7.

2016 Amateur Radio License Classes





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 2016, we will be offering both "open" and "YL only" classes. For more information, click here.





Do you need help with your HAM station, tower, or other equipment? Do you need assistance with getting on the air? Do you need help with _____ (fill in the blank)?
