The best way to have a good club experience is for everyone to play by the same rules, and to that end, the new LVRAC club bylaws are now posted. The bylaws are also available on the sidebar to the left.
Planning for Field has begun and interest lists are being formed. Team Captains/members are needed for the following categories:

Our HAM of the month for April is Billy Smith. Bill is very active in HAM radio, and has been involved with the LVRAC for a long while. He can often be found helping out those new to the hobby; read more about him in his on-line bio.
The LVRAC would like to thank Bryan Smith KD7JJH for his contributions to Ham Radio while in the Las Vegas Valley. He has contributed to several Ham clubs, volunteered for numerous events and recently served as a Net Controller for the LVRAC Tuesday net. With Bryan leaving Las Vegas, we are currently in need of a net controller for the net conducted on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Its easy to do and setting up for Newsline can be done using something as elaborate as a rigblaster, or as simple as a rubberband around the mike (if your station is quiet).
If there are no volunteers, the net on that evening (2nd Tuesday of the month) will be cancelled until such time as someone steps up.
If you have an hour to spare for the club, contact Jay at .
We operate the K7UGE repeaters on 146.940 (PL 100.0) and 448.500 (PL 100.0) as well as the QST machine on 146.730.
Our VHF repeater is located on top of the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino,
the UHF repeater is located on top of the Tropicana Hotel & Casino. The
UHF Repeater operating on 448.500 has been taken out of service
temporarily. The club is in the process of moving the UHF Repeater
from the Tropicana Hotel to Southern Hills Hospital. Anyone interested in
helping with rebuilding the system hardware and/or with the physical
reinstallation should contact Bill Croghan WB0KSW at .
These repeaters will give you terrific coverage up and down the Las Vegas "strip" and city wide, making them ideal for all convention goers and tourists.
In addition to a club meeting, we also have an optional social hour at Denny's, an hour before the meeting (6PM). Those wishing to order dinner during the social hour are asked to arrive no later than 6:15 PM. Club meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month except December, when the club has a holiday party. Next Meeting: 7:00PM, Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Denny's restaurant located at 6300 W. Charleston. For driving directions, please see the map at the bottom of this page.
A club sponsored net meets on non-meeting Tuesdays at 7:00 PM on our repeaters. As of this time, the club net is held on the VHF repeater (146.940). In the near future, we will reconnect the link to our UHF repeater (448.500). All are invited to participate in the net and to attend the club's monthly meetings.
Another primary source of information on what is going on with the club members is the LVRAC email list. Our list is moderated, and you'll have to register to join the email list. Check out the email list page for details on how to join it.
We also keep a calendar of events, the ham calendar, to help you plan your spare time.
