The Kings County Radio Club is an organization dedicated to the art and science of radio communications. We help to educate those individuals interested in learning about Amateur Radio as a hobby.
For the June 7th and July 5th monthly Club meetings and our July 16th VE Sessions we will be holding them ACROSS THE STREET from New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital at 501 Sixth Street, “Wesley House” in room 6B, on the sixth floor! Take the elevator to the 6th floor and follow the signs to Room 6B! If the front door is locked, please wait there while we get it opened.
Welcome to the KCRC Bi-Weekly Technical Net!
We sponsor an informal Technical Question & Answer Net on the second AND fourth Wednesdays of each month at 9 PM on the KC2RC Repeater, 146.730 MHz output, 146.130 MHz input with an 88.5 Hz PL tone. Everyone, please come. Ask a question, or answer one, or just come to show moral support. No question is a silly question.
