The Purpose of Lodi Amateur Radio Club is for like-minded individuals to meet and discuss, learn and grow our knowledge of HAM radio and spread that love of knowledge to others and to be ready in the event of an emergency to be the communication center when normal communication channels are not available.
We do operate weekly Ham Radio Nets that meet every Wednesday Night starting at 7:00pm. They include 2 Meters, 10 Meters and soon to be reactivated on 6 Meters.
The 10 Meter Net begins at the close of the 2 Meter Net and the time does vary
The Club meets on a monthly basis the FIRST Thursday of each month from 6:30pm at the Richmaid Restaurant...check the LATEST NEWS for details. Non-members are welcome to join us at our monthly meeting to learn more about us and bring input on meeting topics.
The Club Board meets the LAST Monday of the month at 6:00pm to discuss club business
Learn everything we can about HAM radio theory, knowledge, practical applications, techniques, history and the future and then pass that information on to others so that they may do the same. We do this for fun, learning and to be ready in the event of a disaster to respond to it by aiding emergency services with communication.
Our club is active and we enjoy improving and practicing our skills. We hold weekly NETS and of course host Field Day each year. We also provide support communications for such events as walk-a-thons, Boy Scouts, Street Fairs and others. Events often require lots of people and we are glad to help other organizations with their events. Field Day is also a great excuse to come and BBQ. Food, fun and radios are the norm. Check out our photo gallery for the evidence.
The Lodi ARC is sponsoring a website for the area’s VHF UHF contest enthusiast. It’s called the “Nor Cali” vhf uhf contest page and the url is www.n6sjv.org. The new ARRL Vhf contest rules now allow for “assistance”, regardless of entry category. The Nor Cali page is part EME/Pingjockey style chat and part spotting network but with a specific focus on covering Northern California and the Greater San Joaquin Valley. The site works very well on smart phones and wireless data devices so rovers and remote portable stations should find it very easy to access. Here, self-spotting is encouraged and all radio amateurs are welcome including lurkers. We’re are fully operational now and for the looking forward to the annual VHF and UHF Contests. http://www.n6sjv.org/
