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!!

President’s Message

Well, here we are at the end of 2021 and we car going to celebrate 100 years of Amateur Radio in the Eugene/Springfield area. And we are going to do it by having a Mini Field Day at the Science Center with all kinds of activities, including a balloon launch. So come and join us on December 4th from Noon to 5″00pm. It’s going to be fun.

There has been a great deal of activity among the Special Interest Groups and the club nets. and it’s nice to see plenty of participation, especially by the new hams in the group. So keep learning about this great hobby and have some fun with your radios. I really enjoy the reports from those who have had some fun learning how to use their radios and have some success And a big thank you to all those long time cub members who have given their time and knowledge to help those interested in Amateur Radio  find answers to their questions and have more fun  participating with the group.. And thanks to the VE’s for helping all those who want to earn their licenses or upgrade their license.

Thank you to everyone for a fun year in Amateur Radio.

As always…See you on the radio
