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.

LARK Amateur Radio Testing Process
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.

The testing session will begin immediately following the LARK meeting.  The ending time of the meetings varies, so we ask that applicants be at the LARK meeting no later than 10:30 AM.  We encourage attendance for the whole meeting which begins at 9:30 AM.

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.  The next class is not scheduled at this time.

Cinderella Bicycle Classic      Saturday, April 15, 2023
The Cinderella Classic, Challenge and Short rides are 65/100/35-mile recreational bicycle ride (not a race) for women & girls only. Males do not ride the Cinderella; they do the organization, support, rest stops and SAGs for the Cinderella's. This event provides the opportunity for all  hams of any experience to provide support from different assignments. The assignments are Stationary, SAGs, and Shuttles. Most assignments can be done with a HT. We encourage you to volunteer for this very worthwhile public service event. LARK has supported this event for many years.

Devil Mountain Double Century   CONFIRMED Saturday, April 29, 2023
LARK has supported this event since its beginning in 1996.
There are major changes as the organizer has changed, and the start/finish and route have changed (and may change yet again!).  At press time (3/20/23) LARK's support plan for this event is still in flux but below is our present summary.
We are expecting our support to begin at 10:00AM and end by 8:00PM.  We should need no more than ten Hams to support this event.  Best guess is that we will support three rest stops, several LARK APRS tracker installs, and one SAG vehicle.  Supported rest stops will be in Hayward, on Mt. Diablo, and in Concord.  The focus of our support will be the Mt. Diablo area between Dublin and Concord.  One noteworthy assignment is for a Ham to ride in a SAG vehicle, supplying a mobile radio and mag mount antenna.  If you accept that assignment you will meet the SAG driver at his home in Dublin at 14:30 in the afternoon, ride to Concord, and then SAG back to Dublin, returning by 18:30 hours.
If you can help, please sign up, and please consider being radio support for a SAG driver.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
Thanks,  John, wb6ety   wb6ety04

Devil Mountain Run- Sunday, May 7, 2023
This event takes place in downtown Danville and is a foot race. Each position will be stationary, except for a possible bicycle sweep. Net Control will be in San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District Communications Vehicle CS-131 in downtown Danville. Due to the location of the positions you will be able to perform your function with a handheld radio. The week of the event you will receive all necessary information including assignments. This event is a great chance to get out and use your radio and all levels of experience is welcome. Our prime concern is to provide emergency communications along the race routes. Assignment times are from 0700 hrs until released.
