Because we cannot meet in person right now, there is a weekly Zoom meeting that is open to any amateur radio operator or anyone that is interested in amateur radio. This is not a club sponsored event and is open to everyone. It happens every Wednesday at 6:30pm EDT and we go to at least 8:30 and sometimes longerMore Info
In an effort to make the monthly Frederick Amateur Radio Club meetings more informative and enjoyable, we are looking for folks to give a 20-45 minute presentation to the club on something that they know well. You don’t have to be a Ph.D. in electronic engineering or even hold an amateur license, just have something of interest to present to our membership.
Individuals who would be willing to speak on a ham related topic at one of our monthly meetings are encouraged to contact us. We meet on the third Monday of each month at 7 PM at the Independent Hose Company on Baughmans Ln.
