We work hard to keep this site updated, & running without glitches, broken links, etc. Check back often as we change to serve you better. 

We’ve been active in the Alliance area since 1986. There were clubs in the Alliance area before that time. You can read about them on our History page. 

You are invited to attend any of our monthly events. We meet for breakfast once a month on the first Saturday. Then on the 2nd Wednesday, we have our club meeting. You can learn more about all our events on our calendar page

We are an ARRL affiliated Special Service Club. We’ve recently been granted IRS 501(c)(3) status. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by the IRS.
