SKYWARN Basic Training Class April 30

If you have an interest in SKYWARN, our friends in Powhatan are going to run a Basic Training Class on April 30th at Fire Station #2. Please visit the PARC website for details and links to registration. If you cannot make that session the SKYWARN page has listings for classes from March through May all around our area and others.


What a great show it was! THANKS to every Frostfest committee member, volunteer, and attendee who came to see us.  Robert Orndoff W4BNO made a time lapse video again this year that you can find here. Maybe you'll spot yourself!

    Our club meetings are usually the third Friday of each month at 7:30 PM.  We meet at the Richmond Volunteer Rescue Squad building at 1802 Chantilly Street.  This is near the Wendy's at the corner of West Broad and Staples Mill.  Park in the lot behind the Wendy's and knock on the rear door of the squad building for entry (this is the building directly behind the gas station).  You do not need to be a club member or a licensed ham to attend a meeting.

    The next regularly scheduled board meeting is:

    Wednesday, March 11th- 6:30p
    Henrico County Public Library - Front-Entrance Reserved Conference Room
    10501 Staples Mill Rd
    Glen Allen, VA 23060

    Club members are invited to attend board meetings.

    Membership Dues Increase effective May 1st, 2019

    Individual Member dues will increase to $25/year and Family Member dues (covering all licensed amateurs in one household) will increase to $40/year.
