The Valley Radio Club of Oregon (formerly Valley Radio Club of Eugene), located in Eugene, Oregon, was chartered in 1932, and is one of the oldest, continuously operated club stations in the United States. It has been affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) since 1932, and associated with the American Red Cross since 1951. If you are a newly licensed ham operator in our community, please come on by and meet other hams. Our membership is diverse, with ham radio experience ranging from several months to many decades!! Let us share our hamming experiences with you, and you’ll see what ham radio fun is all about!!

Vote at April 3 Meeting to Amend our Constitution and By-laws

At our Friday, March 6, 2020, club meeting it was proposed on behalf of the board and seconded, to make two changes to our recently adopted Constitution and By-laws, and vote on these at our April meeting.  We’ve posted a more detailed explanation of the proposals and reasons here.

We’re becoming a 501(c)(3) Organization!

We voted in December to adopt new Constitution and By-laws and a separate draft of the Policies and Procedures document.  We’re almost ready to file our request with the IRS and wait for approval.

Club Meetings

We usually meet the first Friday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Norkenzie Christian Church at 2530 Crescent Ave., Eugene, Oregon.

Get on the Air

When the Eugene Science Center opens again after this COVID-19 shutdown, on Saturdays from noon to 2:00 pm get on the air at our station there at 2300 Leo Harris Pkwy., Eugene, Oregon.

President’s Message

It’s a new year with 2020 and new things happening with the club. With us becoming a 501c(3), it means new and exciting things are happening. I hope everyone will get involved in one way or another. If everyone does a little bit then we can get a lot done. Remember that VRC is our club not one person’s club and we are here to promote ham radio, help others with their enjoyment of ham radio and have fun on the radio waves.

Thanks to everyone for making VRC what it is. The oldest amateur radio club in Oregon.

Happy New Year to you all!!!  See you on the radio.
