The club was formed in 1995 by a few ham radio enthusiasts at Nellis AFB. With our affiliation we support them by providing communications for some of their community events and participate in some of the events with them. Some annual events we provide communications for is Corporate Challenge and their Volk’s March. Other events that we assist with providing communications for are Challenge Cup Relay aka Baker to Vegas, Silver State Classic, and Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) along with other community events.
In November 2003 we became an ARRL affiliated club. Our members are also active with other amateur radio related groups to include RACES, ARES, Skywarn, and CERT.
Our meetings are held at the Salvation Army building at 2900 Palomino Lane, in the Fellowship Hall. Please remember that we must all wear face masks or face coverings and have our temperatures taken when entering the room, on the 2nd Thursday of each month a 7:00 PM. The club also sponsors a weekly net on the KC7TMC repeaters on non-meeting Thursday at 7:00 PM. All amateur radio operators are invited to participate in the net and attend our monthly meetings.
