The origins of amateur radio can be traced to the late 19th century, but amateur radio as practiced today began in the early 20th century. As with radio in general, amateur radio was associated with various amateur experimenters and hobbyists. Amateur radio enthusiasts have significantly contributed to science, engineering, industry, and social services. Research by amateur operators has founded new industries, built economies, empowered nations, and saved lives in times of emergency.
Attention Club Members!
The ECARC Board met on November 17, 2020 to discuss recent COVID-19 developments. The board realizes that some members are concerned about attending club meetings/events due to the recent spike in COVID cases statewide. The decision was made to take a hybrid approach to meetings that will include all members that want to participate. Therefore, the meetings at the clubhouse will still take place (masks are recommended) for those that want to attend in person. For those with concerns, ZOOM will be set-up at the clubhouse so members can attend remotely if they wish.
If you want to attend remotely and are not familiar with ZOOM, please click on the link and you will be able to watch a You Tube video on how to join the meeting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo1l6Ijz_wg
All club members should receive an email with the Meeting ID and Password before the December 7th Meeting. The email will be sent out in the next day or two. Thank you for your patience.
