As a service to the community, we can offer our opinion on what your old electronics or ham radio equipment might be worth. If you have leftover or unused ham radio gear, we may be able to help provide advice on its value, and possibly remove equipment or sell things off, and we gratefully accept donations of surplus electronics. Contact a club volunteer to get started.

HAM Classes Cancelled

Our ham radio licensing classes are on hold.

When restrictions relax, we will reschedule. Watch this space.
