We are saddened to let everyone know Al Connor, WB2JQJ became a "Silent Key" on the morning of February 12th.

Al, or "Hannibal Al" as he was known on the various nets he frequented, was a resident of Hannibal, NY but nonetheless was also a member of LARC, having become acquainted with some of our members on the 75-meter Wolverine Single Sideband Net. Al often joined the Thursday night 2-meter LARC net via EchoLink. He will be missed greatly.

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.

Upcoming Events

  • General Club Meeting - You don't need to be a member to attend our General Club Meetings. The public is welcome to join us!

  • SkyWarn Training - Skywarn spotter training sessions are held to train individuals on how to accurately observe such weather phenomena as wall clouds, funnel clouds, tornadoes, shelf clouds associated with squall lines, and clouds that resemble funnel clouds and tornadoes but really aren't.

Ham Mentoring Offer

To any of our members who are new to the hobby, Tas and Doris are extending an open invitation to come to their home to view, and discuss their station. New club members can view their antenna system as well.

Again, this is an open invitation for LARC members only, and Tas & Doris request that if you want to visit you'll need to phone them first, please do NOT just drop in.
