Its a new year and its time to fulfill those HAM Radio New Years Resolutions!
If you are a HAM Radio Operator and looking to help make a difference in your community, looking to build relationships with folks that have similar interests, broaden your knowledge of HAM radio or are just interested in learning more about the hobby, we encourage you to attend one of our monthly club meetings in Richland Center or reach out to a current member for more information.
We are always looking to grow the PVR Amateur Radio Club, so if you are interested in a great hobby, and want to serve the community at the same time, contact us. You will be put on a contact list for the next Tech level class, or the next class for upgrading your present license. Also, please attend a PVR meeting. You will meet some like-minded people who will welcome you to the wonderful world of ham radio.
Club socializing, public service activities, and emergency communications support have grown with the Club. Today, PVR ARC is actively engaged with the Richland County Emergency Management team and participates in EOC training and exercises.
We also have a regular Sunday evening PVR Net in addition to the regular monthly 3rd Tuesday meeting. During the winter months (CST) our NET begins at 7:00 pm. During the summer months (CDT) the NET begins at 9:00 pm. The Club holds a monthly program meeting where we learn together and to exchange information.
We also sponsor several annual Club social functions and periodic FYI Bulletins. We offer radio license classes as needed, and sponsor regular license examination sessions throughout the year.
Club members participate in the annual Field Day sponsored by the ARRL, and the national Simulated Emergency Test (SET) which is also an annual event. We provide amateur radio communications support for a variety of Richland County events each year.
We continue to grow in both our own technical skills and in our ability to give to our community. Growing and giving are the historical — and the present — roots of the Pine Valley Repeater Amateur Radio Club.
