Welcome to the Longmont Amateur Radio Club Website




Our club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 6:30 PM, in the Clover building at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. The address is 9595 Nelson Rd and is northeast of the intersection of Nelson and Hover Roads in Longmont. As you enter the Fairgrounds driving North from the South entrance off of Nelson Road, the Clover Building is the building you will see directly in front of you. It is not the smaller building off to the right, which houses the current Fairground offices.

LARC Operations for Winter Field Day 2020

We will be operational for Winter Field Day on January 25th, at the Clover Building at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, from 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm.  We'll be setting up the antennas at 11:00 am.  There will be two-three radios there, including a Icom IC-7300 and an IC-7000, and we'll be making as many contacts as we can during that time on HF.  If you'd like to try your hand on the radio to see how many contacts you can get (with Elmers/mentors there to show you how), or if you'd like to hang out and visit (quietly) with other hams there, please join us!

ARRL "On the Air" Magazine for New Hams! First Edition!

The new ARRL On the Air Magazine is now online & available for ARRL members!  It is geared for new/newer hams, and more experienced hams can learn and enjoy it too!  Here is the link for it:http://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/html5/reader/production/default.aspx?pubname=&pubid=2b55b7de-280c-4770-b209-5aafb264d669

LARCFest Volunteers Wanted!

If you have ideas, sugggestions, and/or skills you would be willing to share with us, we need volunteers from the Club for different tasks.  Not necessarily all at the LARCFest -- even just helping get it all together in advance.  You can also pick time slots that you'd be willing to help at the event -- even a two-three hour time slot on Saturday, 4/4, would be very helpful for us to put on a successful hamfest.  What can you do?  Contact John Parsons (KE0DO) with what skills and/or time slots you can help with. Read on to see!

Turkey Day Net (HF)

Turkey with headphones

I came across information about a "Turkey Day Net" on qrz.com (https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/turkey-day-net-tdn-2019.677706/).  If you want to get away from visiting relatives for a bit, perhaps try seeing if you can reach them!

Looks like they start at 1600 UTC (9am Mountain) and are on the following frequencies (+/- if already in use): 10m-28.450, 15m-21.310, 20m-14.245, 40m-7.200
