Next UARC meeting

Thursday, October 13, 2022 - Meeting will start at 7:30 PM MT

It's Homebrew Night!

This is the meeting where you get to lug in that ham radio project that you've been working on for the past year or so - or, if it's too big to fit through the door, bring pictures!

Come and tell us about your project - both successes and failures - we learn either way!

For more details about this meeting - how to get there, the ways you can present your project - even remotely, via Zoom - and where to park, go to the Meeting Information page.

Volunteer Opportunity

The local BSA Council is requesting help for an upcoming STEM event: The local BSA Council helps UARC by allowing us to store our Field Day trailers at Camp Maple Dell in Payson Canyon.

Help is needed in two areas:

  1. Teaching radio theory and helping kids make contacts.
  2. Teaching electronics and helping youth solder a simple project. Supplies will be provided

The event is October 7-8 with the teaching being in four sessions on the 8th.

Volunteers are welcome to camp at the event which will be held at Camp Maple Dell in Payson Canyon.  All volunteers will need to complete a no cost application to be a merit badge counselor and complete a short online youth protection training.

Other club news and announcements:

Gordon Smith, K7HFV (SK):

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and "Elmer" Gordon Smith, K7HFV on April 21, 2022.  Gordon was not only the friendly voice on the radio, but the "Elmer's Elmer", helping new hams into the hobby, offering sage advice, and pointing the way for many new hams to become Elmers themselves.

You can find a short bio about Gordon and information about the memorial service here.

He will be greatly missed!
