Meetings & Events
The Rogue Valley Amateur Radio Club (RVARC) normally meets
- first Thursday of each month (except July and August)
- from 7:00 to 9:00
- at the Medford Police Department Community Room, 219 S. Ivy St., Medford.
Meetings start at 7:00pm and last until about 9:00pm. They begin with a short business meeting on Club plans and activities. This is followed by a break for coffee, cookies, and socializing. Often, members will bring home-built projects or other radio-related paraphernalia for display and discussion during the break.
A substantive presentation follows the break. These are often on specific technical topics, but also on such down-to-earth topics as rigging antennas in small spaces, operating procedures, and hands-on topics like using Arduinos or Raspberry Pi’s in Ham radio.
