The Livonia Amateur Radio Club Website
Advisory: Requests for Information from the Public and the Press
Many individuals have loved ones in Puerto Rico and they are understandably hopeful that Amateur Radio operators can relay messages to them. As a result, some are contacting amateurs with requests to pass message traffic to the island.
At the same time, individual amateurs and clubs have reported that local press representatives have contacted them to request information about Amateur Radio involvement in Puerto Rico. This is likely to increase as word spreads in the national media about our activities.
For inquiries from the public, ARRL advises that these individuals should be informed that amateurs travelling to the island to support the American Red Cross effort will be tasked with handling outbound traffic only. With that in mind, members of the public should access the American Red Cross Safe and Well System online at https://safeandwell.communi
For press inquiries, please ask reporters to contact ARRL directly at email@example.com. A system has been established at ARRL Headquarters to respond to press inquiries in a timely and accurate manner.
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.
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.
LARC Slow speed CW net
The LARC slow speed CW net is currently on indefinite hold at this time. This is due to a drop in attendance/interest.

LARC members gather on the second Saturday of each month to spend a bit of time outdoors enjoying various aspects of our hobby (with the exception of the winter months when we meet indoors). See our LARC in the Park page HERE for more information.
