February 11, 2016 LARC Meeting

"Everything you always wanted to know about Software Defined Radio, but were afraid to ask"

A presentation about SDR, explaining the basics, and talking about how to get started.
We'll look at the different kinds of SDR, where to get more information, and how to get involved with a minimal, or sometimes even NO purchase.

1st Inaugural CW Net Is A Hit!


January 6, 2016 saw the first LARC CW net take place, and it was a home run. The net was lead by our own super CW'er Peter, AA2VG, with assistance from Vic, WA2ARQ. 3 CW beeginner newbies tried out their fists, and Peter called it an "impressive performance"! If you have always wanted to try CW, but were afraid of the machine gun CW guys, try the LARC CW Net.


The net will take place every Wednesday night at 8:30 PM local time. Check in on 147.210, and from there you'll QSY to 10M. Join the fun, try CW today!

National Parks On The Air

The flags AC2FV will fly while operating the NPOTA event have arrived. So... Dust off those outdoor rigs. Polish up your qrp skills. Throughout 2016, Amateur Radio will be helping the National Park Service celebrate theior 100th anniversary. Hams from across the country will activate NPS Units, promote the National Park Service and showcase Amateur Radio to the public. Let's get some LARC club competition going and see who can get the most NPS units activated in 2016.
