News and Coming Events

Kentucky QSO Party

The Kentucky QSO Party is coming up Saturday, June 3 and is sponsored this year by the Kentucky Contest Group. We are requesting that you ask your members to try and get on the air that day (even for just an hour or two) to activate their County and make the KyQP another success this year. Here is the link for additional info: Exchange is RST and your County. Thanks for your participation and hope to see you on the air that day.

KyQP Chairman

ARRL Field Day

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Plan on joining NKARC at Lincoln Ridge Park, Independence, June 24-25. Details to follow.

Amateur Exam Study Buddy

Scott, N3FJP and his son Chris, KB3KCN have gifted the amateur radio community with a new web site: Amateur Exam Study Buddy. This site will help newcomers to the hobby obtain their very first license, or help existing hams upgrade to a new one!
