We have a variety of speakers who share interesting presentations about Amateur Radio at our club meetings. We invite you to attend one of our meetings. This is a great way to meet our members and learn more about what our club is doing.
Our Tech Nights are held on the Second Tuesday of each month. These sessions are technical and how-to in nature. Previous Tech Nights have covered a wide range of topics – everything from How To Get On The Air to Software Defined Radios to Surface Mount Soldering and much more. They are put on by our club members to help build our technical knowledge, operating skills and our stations. We invite you to come to one our Tech Night Sessions and see what they are about. We produce videos of these sessions and our club members have access to an archive of these videos and the associated presentation materials so they can readily use the wealth of information shared at our Tech Nights. You can find out more about our Tech Night Program here.
Perhaps you are looking to earn your first Amateur Radio License or upgrade your existing License to a higher class. We can help you. Our club teaches license classes to help you earn all three levels of Amateur Radio Licenses. We also provide many training and mentoring (Elmering) opportunities for Amateurs who want to learn more about our hobby.
