Hello and welcome to the web home of Culver City ARES.
Starting January 19, 2019, we are excited to be offering a new Club Day format! Our Club Days will be held once a month on the third Saturday of the month from 10 am – 1 pm. Come out to learn, become proficient, and operate the station equipment! We can also program radios.
Club Day Activity plan:
- 10a – 10:30a: General housekeeping & check of the systems in the radio room.
- 10:30a – 10:45a: A short check-in Net utilizing members who are on hand to conduct the net. We will announce any activities we have planned for the day and invite folks to join us. We might also have variants of the net exploring Simplex, Winlink & ARDEN check-ins as time goes on.
- The focus of club day and subjects covered will change from month to month, some days we will perform hands-on work with equipment, some days will involve field work with radios & some with outside presenters.
Our 3.6 GHz Backbone link from our AREDN network to the much larger SoCal HamNet will be re-located soon for much improved throughput!
