The Valley Radio Club of Oregon (formerly Valley Radio Club of Eugene), located in Eugene, Oregon, was chartered in 1929, 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.

President’s Message

Well, here we are almost at the end of February and nearly to the end of Winter.  There has been a lot of activity among a lot of club members in preparation of up-coming events. Including Parks On The Air and Field Day. It sure is nice to see all the participation of the club members. It’s a big change from years past and it warms my heart to see this happening. To all of you keep up the good work. I hope it has been a lot of fun for all of you too.

It’s also nice to see that agreements with LCOG and other groups are coming together which is a good thing for Amateur Radio. Thanks to the other VRC board members and those VRC club members who help in so many ways. Be glad that we have such an active club membership. I think we all  have a lot of fun with ham radio. So, stay tuned and see what else is coming our way to have fun with radio.

As always…See you on the radio
