Formed in 1957, the Edmond Amateur Radio Society is a full-service amateur
radio club. We assist our community with emergency and
weather nets, as well as parade staging and communication. We
conduct licensing classes and technical workshops, and actively participate
in HF operations such as Field Day and special
events. We run weekly nets on VHF/UHF and HF and
have numerous social events throughout the year. For more information, please check out
our About Us tab.
Our board meetings are held at 7:00 PM on the second Tuesday of each month at the Edmond Community Center, 28 E. Main St., Edmond, OK 73034. See Map
We encourage you to come participate in our monthly meetings, which are open to all, including non-members.
