Meeting agenda:


  • Second hour: JS8 Call demo on VHF, UHF and HF radios.

  • Keyboard to keyboard messaging on Amateur Radio. JS8Call is a digital mode with the robustness of FT8, combined with a messaging and network protocol layer for weak signal communication on HF, using a keyboard messaging style interface. It is not designed for any specific purpose other than connecting amateur radio operators who are operating under weak signal conditions. This will allow anyone in the club to send email to anyone else in the club when the internet and normal email goes down. The system also has the ability to do store and forward services.


    When the internet, telephones and cell phones are not working, we will be in radio communication. We train and practice NOW, to be ready for future emergency radio nets during man made crisis or natural disasters. Find out how you can be involved even if you do not have a desire to obtain your ham radio license. How our club can benefit you and how you can be a part of the whole club of members and guests.


    Our Christian Ham Club is open also to those who do not want to study to obtain an amateur radio license.  They can listen and monitor the ham radio bands but cannot (legally) transmit.


    For more information, and if you are ready within two week of taking your ham exam, please contact
