U P D A T E #3
...has provided the club with a newer (12/07/22) annotated list of area repeaters giving us more current and detailed info than you will see in The Repeater Book; click HERE to check out the .pdf file.
Here's a little something to pique your interest, watch a video made by the students of Montana State University, all about the Ham hobby in their area. Really pretty interesting, and close to home, too.

Thanks for the link Jim, N7JA
Who doesn't love cool antenna arrays?
One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins. Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below. A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do.
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement.
You are welcome to join in our net formally, just go to the NET CHECK IN tab to the left, or perhaps just feel free to listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing.
GUESTS are ALWAYS welcome.
