For more information on becoming an amateur radio operator, click on the "FCC Exams" tab for dates, times, location and study material. Please feel free to drop by our monthly club meeting. Each meeting we discuss two topics regarding amateur radio. Also, if you would like one-on-one mentoring, we can arrange to pair you up with a mentor (or also known as Elmer).

Hope to hear you on the air waves.

Already have your amateur radio license?

Come to our monthly meeting or participate in our nets! All of our nets are open to visitors. Club nets are every Thursday; Elmer nets are every first and third Wednesdays of the month. The Elmer net discusses various aspects of "how to" and provides assistance and advice to all hams. Also, the ARRL has a new podcast for new hams called "So Now What?" Click here to find more information about the podcast.
