3Rivers Amateur Radio Club

At the April meeting we will be making final plans for the Riggins Jet Boat Races coming up on April 18-20. Everyone should bring their radios and program the frequencies we will be using for the safety communications for the race. One ham for each safety boat as well as several on shore duty are needed.

The location for the Field Day exercise in June will be voted on. The location will be either Lions Park in Grangeville or the Riverfront Park in Kamiah. The Grangeville location is a better radio location. Kamiah is closer to home for most.

After a short business meeting, those attending will have an opportunity to build dual band fold up j-pole antennas. Price of materials is expected to be under $10.

The Idaho State Ham Radio Convention will be on April 25-27 in Boise. The April meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, at the Pine Ridge Baptist Church at the top of Hill Street in Kamiah. Amateur radio examinations will be conducted starting at 6 p.m. For club information, call Bob Finch at 926-4155. For examination information, call David Brainerd at 926-7886. Club website is
