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.
It is with great sadness that we report that our Club Member, Howie KD2MSU, became a Silent Key this Monday, February 5, 2024. His funeral service took place this Wednesday February 7, 2024. He was a dependable presence on our InfoNet, our 10 Meter Net, and Joe ACAE’s Fusion Net, delivering weather predictions, more accurately than you find anywhere else. He was a good friend to many members of the Club. He will be sorely missed. Here is a link to his memorial page. Please light a candle there, in his memory.

Our Winter Field Day 2024
The Kings County Radio Club meets on the first Wednesday of every month, currently via Zoom video conferencing. Our next General Meeting will be held on March 6, 2024. Just send us an email with your email address, that you would like the invitation to be sent to (please provide your real full name, anonymous requests will not be replied to). You do not have to be a member to attend our meetings. In fact, we urge those interested to drop in and join us for our monthly meeting.
We offer a “pre-meeting” during the 7 PM to 8 PM portion, where we have arranged for an informal question and answer session. Both unlicensed, as well as license holders, may have questions, and our members will try our best to provide answers or at least sources of information for those requiring them.
The General Meetings begin around 8 PM and usually last until 9:30 to 10 PM.
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 mention a topic that you would like to hear more about. No question is a silly question.
