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!

If you would like to have a specific half-hour long slot on one of these radios, plese send email to Doug, KE0SI.

For more information about Winter Field Day and to see the rules, go to:

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:

If you are not yet a member, join ARRL with our Club ARRL Application, which gives Longmont Amateur Radio Club a few dollars to help our club remain an affiliated club.  Get the ARRL Application below, fill it out, and bring it to any officer at the Club meetings or activities to get your LARC-related membership price, or if you prefer, you can mail it to LARC at P.O. Box 86, Longmont, CO, 80502.

If you are not yet a LARC member, you can use the application below for that also. You can fill this one out and either bring it to a club activity or mail it to the LARC address above, either alone or with the ARRL application.

Please note that these are separate memberships.


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!  

We need people to help with publicity, social media, table set-up & take down, marketing, and a multitude of other skills that YOU probably have.  Please donate some of your skills and/or time to pull this off for our Club!  This is our largest event of the year, and we need as many hands as we can get to assist us!

Contact John Parsons (KE0DO) with any info about what skills you have and/or can offer to help with the planning or running of this event!
