Welcome to the Longmont Amateur Radio Club Website


Our club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7PM, in the Clover building at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.The address is 9595 Nelson Rd and is near the intersection of Nelson and Hover Roads in Longmont. As you enter the Fairgrounds driving North from the South entrance off 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.

Repeater Now Operational at the Justice Center Location

The LARC VHF and UHF repeaters are now operational at their new Justice Center location.  The move took three days to dissassemble, erect new antennas, and re-assemble the repeaters at the new location.  At this time the same components are in use, but a number of items including the controllers will be upgraded over the next few months.  In addition, we hope that some final tuning should further improve performance.  Please give the repeaters a workout and report any problems.

Still Time to Register for the Technician License Prep Class!

There are still six seats available in the beginning Ham Radio Technician License Preparation Class which begins Tuesday, May 30th!  Register for this class NOW, so you have your license for your summer fun!

The current plan is to now move the repeater(s) to the Justice Center and the target for completion is by End of Day tomorrow.
