Amateur Radio, also known as Ham Radio, is a popular pursuit and service in which licensed participants operate (and often build) radio equipment with a deep appreciation of the radio art.

Amateur Radio is a mix of fun, public service, and convenience. Although “Hams” get involved for many reasons, they all have in common a basic knowledge of radio technology and operating principles, and they pass an examination for the FCC license to operate on radio frequencies known as the “Amateur Bands.”

Because amateur radio is a social and service activity, Hams usually join one or more clubs and associations–such as the American Radio Relay League (ARRL)–as well as locals groups. In the Medford/Jackson County region of Southern Oregon, one local group is the Rogue Valley Amateur Radio Club (RVARC). We are a local affiliate of the ARRL.

Come join us! We love newcomers–old-time Hams, Newbies, or anyone interested in pursuing Amateur radio–licensed yet or not.
