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

Come check out the new digital HF station. Shawn (WØFW) will be answering any questions you may have about digital modes.

Need a radio? HSARC has a few for sale

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 Managment.

There are a few excess radios that are now available to current club members, and they are as follows:
