Recently we activated a new email address to submit thoughts and suggestions for the benefit of the Clark County Amateur Radio club. All members are encouraged to share their thoughts with the leadership team to input new ideas, or concerns, about the club's operation now and in the future.

Amateur radio offers opportunities for fun, education, and public service.† You need a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to transmit.† The license allows you use a wide variety of frequency bands that provide different communication options.† After tornados and hurricanes, amateur radio operators (also called hams) often provide communications for their community until phone and other services are restored.
In 2016, we are offering both "open" and "YL only" classes. For more information, click here.
