Welcome to the Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club

Our goal is to help our members and the public learn more about the hobby through the educational and scientific aspects of Amateur Radio.


Nets, what is a net?  A “Net” is an on the air gathering of licensed and unlicensed HAM’ers who share a common interest in the topic at hand of the Net’s theme.  If you are UN-licensed, by FCC regulations you are not permitted to transmit during the net but entirely welcome to listen in.  By listening hopefully it will inspire you to “go for getting licensed” to be able to participate.  Until then you’re entirely welcome to email a question or comment into the club and we’ll be glad to ask or relay your comment on the air for you.

Elmer Net – Thursday Evenings at 1930hr  What’s an “Elmer”? An Elmer is a mentor, teacher or at minimum a Ham who has more knowledge than maybe you do.  With this said, this net revolves around new and seasoned Hams coming together to ask easy beginner ham questions as well as some very technical questions of the group.  This has got to be one of the best ways to start learning about all aspects of ham radio. 


Weekly Wrap up net – Sunday 2030hr (or after the ARES training net if it goes over) 

 What’s an Wrap up net? Just a quick hang out when you can chat about your week and net projects you have been working on. No scrip, just a fun place to ask questions and chat.
