Welcome to S.M.A.R.S. W8DF Club website

Southern Michigan Amateur Radio Society

Battle Creek,Michigan


A new net for newbies (and more experienced hams)

The Calhoun County Newbie net (name subject to change) will meet on the air using the Pennfield UHF repeater (442.350 MHz, +5 MHz offset and a PL tone of 94.8 Hz) at 7:00 PM Thursdays starting on April 10th. All new hams are invited and encoraged to participate in this net.

The purpose of this net is to learn and all questions are welcome. The only stupid question is the one that you don't ask.

 

Meeting Information

The SMARS club meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month at Maple United Methodist Church at 342 Capital Ave NE. Meetings begin at 7pm and usually last less than 2 hours.
