As many of you know, it has been slow-going to establish ourselves as an amateur radio club. I am so happy to announce that as of today, we are officially an ARRL affiliated club! You can find our listing here.
I have sent in the paperwork to the ARRL for the request of our new club callsign and I am hoping everything will be smooth sailing from here!
After some setbacks, we are back on track to attaining ARRL affiliation! The movement has picked up on our application and I believe we will have some news very shortly!
I am very excited to announce at our September 2018 club meeting, it was voted that we should go ahead and launch our website! It will take some time to really make this the go-to site which correlates a lot of up-to-date amateur radio information in one place, but I am sure we can do it!
This means I need your help. One person cannot possibly know all of the things we need to put on our site; nor know everything about each subject. I have some great assignments I will list below and if you would like to volunteer with helping in any of the areas, please leave a comment or message me directly!
We will be seeking more individuals for positions as the club grows, but for now, those are the ones we need to help get us off the ground!
