Meeting Minutes

 

Become a Member

Attend a meeting and fill out a membership application for a first reading, then come to a second meeting and we’ll re-read your membership application then vote to have you become a full member. Pay your annual dues ($12 per individual, $18 per family, or $6 for youth) and you’re in!

Dues may be paid at a club meeting or you can send them to our treasurer, along with your membership application, to: treasurer@valleyradioclub.org

If you are a member and wish a club roster, send an email to: roster@valleyradioclub.org

 

Get on the Air Station

Our station is available almost every Saturday (when there aren’t U of O home games) from noon to 2:00 pm at the Eugene Science Center, 2300 Leo Harris Pkwy, Eugene. The radio club hosted an open house on Saturday November 5 to demonstrate its new working amateur radio station, W7PXL. Visitors saw new state-of-the-art radio transceivers and radio demonstration equipment, as well as two portable radio transmitters (our Go Boxes.

Come visit, and bring your family!

Lending Library:

The VRC board believes that having access to a range of high-quality equipment is important, so we have a lending library for club members. Items are signed out and loaned for two weeks at a time. (Powerpole connectors & weatherization tape are consumable.)

Lending Library List (with pictures)

To borrow any or several of these items, contact our club librarian (librarian@valleyradioclub.org) who can even help you learn how to use them if you need.

 

Repeaters

We operate on and support two local repeaters.
