Welcome to The Livonia Amateur Radio Club Website

We hope you enjoy your visit here. Please join or login if you have joined before.

We're on summer vacation! LARC does not meet in the months of July and August. Our next meeting will take place Monday, September 28. However, the weekly 2-meter net will continue uninterrupted during the summer on Thursday evenings at 8:00 PM on the LARC repeater, K8UNS 145.350MHz. LARC in the Park will also continue for the summer on the 2nd Saturday of the month (July 11 and August 8).

Club Meetings

When:  4th Monday of each month at 7:00 pm (no meetings in July, August and December).

Where:  The Livonia Civic Center Library in the meeting rooms on the east wing off the foyer.

Club meetings follow a standard format and last about an hour and a half. Often a presentation is given by a club member on a current or relevant topic to amateur radio.

Refreshments are offered during a short break. As a courtesy to our members and speakers, we ask that you arrive a few minutes prior to the start of the meeting.
