Recent donations have provided HSARC with several radios. One was turned into the club's HF digital station and another will be used with a UHF repeater to provide emergency HF communications as part of an ongoing relationship with FEMA and Fall River County Emergency Management.
This radio is currently up for bid. Must be a current club member to bid on item.
Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
The Hot Springs Amateur Radio Club has received another generous donation. Mr. David Bartsch of Rapid City donated a crank-up tower and a couple antennas on the condition that the club remove them from his property. His donation was valued at $2500.
The Hot Springs Amateur Radio Club now has a new Yaesu FT-450D radio that will be used as a dedicated HF station for club members to enjoy operations on digital modes.
This station was made possible by a VERY generous donation from Mr. Robert Phares (KAØROB) of Hot Springs.
Mr. Phares also donated some other items to HSARC, which include a Yaesu FT-2800M 2 meter mobile radio, a Vertex VX150 handheld radio and an Astron RS-20M power supply.
