Livermore Amateur Radio Klub
Net Schedule

Welcome to the Livermore Amateur Radio Klub (LARK) web site.

The Livermore Amateur Radio Klub (LARK) was incorporated on July 30, 1959,  as a nonprofit association of persons commonly interested in amateur radio. LARK serves the communities of Livermore, Pleasanton, and Dublin California, and the surrounding Tri-Valley area. LARK is also affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).


Full membership in LARK is open to all persons holding a valid Amateur Radio License issued by the FCC or legal aliens with valid Reciprocal Operating Privileges. An Associate membership is available for all other persons wishing to join LARK who do not hold a valid Amateur Radio License.

Membership inquiries should be made to the current membership chairperson as listed in the Contacts and Membership area of this web site.

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 ad6kv02(AD6KV at 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: , 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 test… and you don't need to learn Morse Code for ANY level license. 


Don't forget - December 19, Klub Meeting and Annual White Elephant Gift Exchange
Everyone is welcome (even without any gift to exchange)
The rules for the White Elephant gift exchange are usually finalized the day of the meeting.  However, in general, your White Elephant gift should be wrapped so we can't tell what it is.  It should be ham radio related.  It should NOT be expensive, after all it IS a white elephant - a good time to clean up your radio junk box.  At the meeting, numbered tickets are handed out, so people are called at random.
