ARRL Field Day - June 28 - 29, 2014
We have received permission to use the open field north of the airport terminal parking area and the grassy area east of the terminal building for Field Day.  Now it's time to start planning.  If you're interested in helping out let me know and we'll create a separate email list for handling details.  We will add people as we gain momentum!
Operation in the north field area will require battery/generator power, the grass area has power and may make a great demo area. The airport is a nice public venue and we will try to get some PR going as well as see about Boy Scout interest.
We can probably have a BBQ there as well as watch and envy that other expensive hobby of aviation!
Let me know you're interested!!  Thanks!
Ron, AD6KV ad6kv05

===============================

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.
