The Arkansas Diamond Amateur Radio Club
George Martin, KC5RED, is now a silent key. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. He was a founding member of the Arkansas Diamond Amateur Radio Club, and will be missed by all.
Here is a link to his obituary at Harris Funeral Home:
The club decided at our last meeting to have field day at the Morrilton Fire Station,
located at 1700 E. Harding Street, right beside Colton's and in front of the hospital.
We have placed a few pulleys on the towers and trees to make rigging up our antennas easier.
We hope to see everyone there starting around 11am.
Field Day is a great chance for everyone to talk on the radio, but especially for Techs to use the HF bands. Even if you aren't a member of the Arkansas Diamond Amateur Radio Club, we would still be very excited for you to join us. There will be VEs there that day if prospective hams are wanting to test/upgrade.
Here is a photo of the pulleys being installed, special thanks to those at the Morrilton Fire Department for all their help.
We meet the 2nd tuesday of every quarter starting in Janunary/April/July/October at the Conway County Office of Emergency Managment in Morrilton AR at 117 North Division Street. We are about 50 members strong but are always looking for new members. Check out our newsletter for extra information about the club and it's current events.
Curious about ham radio? Ever wanted to talk to people thousands of miles away with less transmitted electricity than it takes to power a common light bulb? Or maybe your a CBer looking to go lugit, whatever the case may be, the ADARC would love to help get you into the hobby!
Next meeting is:

I will keep updating things as time allows me. Soon I hope to have a DX Update available with member logins. Also plan to add more ham radio tools and some other tutorails. I am sorry the changes have been so slow, but I never seem to have as much free time as I would like, and building/maintaining a website is quite a task. That said, I am very greatful for the opportunity!
