Welcome to the Longmont Amateur Radio Club Website




Our club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, at 7 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 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.

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
