Who We Are
The common bond among the membership is that we are active operators and lifelong amateur radio learners with a diverse set of interests; operating interests span the gamut – SSB, FM, AM, CW and Digital modes and cover the spectrum from 160 meters all the way up to the VHF, UHF and SHF bands. Also, many of our members are adept home-brewers who assemble their own equipment. RCR’s membership is a testament to the phrase “There is something in the hobby for everyone…” and the highlight of our monthly meetings is one or more members sharing a recent ham radio experience.
What We OfferWhether you are pursuing your first ham ticket, seeking a license upgrade, needing help putting up an antenna or seeking to engage in some hobby-related information exchange – RCR is proud to support your interests in ham radio! We embrace the view that there are no dumb questions, only those that are not asked. We offer a monthly gathering where ham interests/experiences are shared and explored. The common bond among RCR members is that we are all active in the hobby in some way.
It is not uncommon for members with like interests to aggregate efforts around a common amateur radio passion and form a loosely structured community. One such example would be the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Special Interest Group (SIG) that draws 20+ attendees to its quarterly gatherings. This community is an active subset of the full club membership.
Where We AreYou are encouraged to attend a monthly meeting as you assess your affinity for the club. Our meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month with the one exception – September. Due to the Salmon Run contest, the September club meeting is held on the second Saturday of the month.
