Note from the Secretary

Howdy HVARC members, Dustin Westaby KC9JKV here.  The new year is upon us. Welcome to 2017! Many would say good riddance to 2016, but I would not be so fast to throw it out yet. 2016 had it’s moments for the club. We have had many new HAMs this year, new members. The upgrades to our club tower are ongoing and improving all the time. The echolink internet connection is a big plus. We have had presentations given to club members by a wide variety of local experts, celebrities, and even one by remote telepresence. To name a few of the topics; we toured the Hospital’s antenna setup, learned about Contesting, got exposed to HVARC’s glorious history, and were even treated to advanced weather spotting techniques. Our yearly events of field day, summer picnic, and holiday dinner were as popular as ever.

We are now in 2017, meaning that yearly club membership dues will be collected. Please have your checks or cash available and give to our new Treasurer, Scott Onson. You can also mail them in to our new PO box.

Hidden Valleys ARC, PO Box 620, Platteville, WI 53818

Greetings Everyone!

All amateurs and those interested in amateur radio are welcome at club meetings and events.

The Hidden Valleys Amateur Radio Club is a small friendly club located in the hills and valleys of Southwestern Wisconsin. Our members participate in Field Day, Wisconsin QSO parties, local community service activities, and also offer ham licensing classes. Many of us are trained storm spotters, some have CPR, and a few have multiple Red Cross certifications.

Our club meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM in the lower level of the Southwest Health Center in Platteville Wisconsin. We have a weekly Sunday night net meeting at 7:30 PM on the N0WLU repeater on 146.895Mhz 114.8 pl. All check-ins are welcome.
