Next Meeting: Aug 1st at 7:30pm

Reminder: Clubhouse will be open early for those wishing to use the club's HF stations!!

Time is running out to bid on this ICOM R2

Recent donations have provided HSARC with several radios. One was turned into the club's HF digital station and another will be used with a UHF repeater to provide emergency HF communications as part of an ongoing relationship with FEMA and Fall River County Emergency Management.

This radio is currently up for bid. Must be a current club member to bid on item.
