2016 Events

You may wonder what the club does with your $35 annual membership dues and other funds we raise. If you haven’t renewed or joined yet, perhaps this will give you some incentive to do so.

As a non-profit corporation, the KCRA uses its funds in various ways, both for the benefit of its members, and for furthering the radio art.


By the time 2016 is over the club whould have: 

                                                         -- Sponsor a FREE licensing classes, helping to bring new people into the hobby.

                                                         --Sponsor a EC-001 Emergency Communications class. These classes are free, with a $15.00 test fee for the ARRL the certificate.

                                                         --Sponsored six totally FREE licensing exam sessions, held at the Guild for Exceptional Children every other month.


That’s right, with our LARC team, you can upgrade or take the technician exam without any fee whatsoever.

Repeater improvements galore! Let’s not forget the cost of insuring this equipment, our liability insurance, activities such as Field Day, Light House Weekend, Elmer 101, Hands on Labs, our regular meeting activities, and the donations we make to retain our meeting facility.

Of course this is not a complete list of what the club does, but as you can see, we stretch every dollar as far as possible.

If you’re not already a member, or have not renewed, please consider doing so today!

The Kings County Repeater Association is currently looking for assistance in forming a Field Day Committee for 2016. Field Day this year will be June 25th and June 26th. We are looking for 2-3 people who would like to chair this committee. The Responsibility of the committee will be to find a location to host Field Day, determine if the location has power or if we need to bring a generator, determine what radios and antennas can be setup on site.  If you are interested in being part of this Committee please let us know.  You can email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
