What is amateur radio?

Amateur radio, often called Ham Radio, is both a hobby and a service in which participants, called "hams" use various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public service, recreation and self-training.

Amateur radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide) wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary.

How to join?

You don't have to be a radio amateur to join the club, but it is highly recommended to get an amateur radio license if you are not licensed already. We can definitely help you with this.

To join the club, you will need to fill a membership form and pay the membership dues ($35.00 paid annually)
Once you become a member, you will benefit from all the services we offer.
