How to have Amateur Radio support for your event
If you would like Amateur Radio Communications support for your event and for assistance in planning for better communications and safety concerns and event coordination, we can help. LARK can provide communications support for all areas where the event is taking place as well as in areas where cell phones do not work. We also can provide communications for the SAG/Sweep Vehicles, Rest Stops, Water Stations, etc. Please contact the LARK Events Coordinator listed on the Contacts Page for assistance.

Test Sessions after the Klub Meetings

LARK conducts testing sessions on an as-needed / as-requested basis immediately following the Klub meetings. To request or determine if there will be a testing session please contact Ron Kane, AD6KV ad6kv03(AD6KV at arrl.net) at least 2 weeks in advance so that arrangements can be made. We can support test sessions nearly every month and will make an effort to accommodate all requests but unfortunately there will be some we are unable to satisfy. See the Meetings page for directions.


For other exams in the local area see:
http://www.arrl.org/find-an-amateur-radio-license-exam-session , where you can do a ARRL Exam Session Search.  You can search by state or by ZIP Code and distance you are willing to travel.

Amateur Radio Technician License Training Class

LARK conducts a training class several times each year that will teach you what you need to know to take and pass the "Technician" level licensing testů and you don't need to learn Morse Code for ANY level license.
