Welcome!

LVSRA has been affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) since 1930, and was incorporated in 1977 for the purpose of information exchange, to promote radio knowledge, fraternize with other radio operators for efficiency and cooperation between members, to conduct club programs and activities so as to promote an interest in amateur radio, and to provide emergency communication to the community.

Monthly Meetings

The LVSRA holds regular meetings on the third Saturday of each month at 8:00 am at Heisey’s Diner, 1740 N Highway 72, Lebanon, PA. This is a few miles north of Lebanon. We have VE testing sessions at every LVSRA club meeting.

Lebanon County 2 Meter Emergency Net

This is a directed net commencing at 8:00 pm EST, operating on a frequency of 147.315 MHz with a PL of 82.5 Hz. All licensed amateur radio operators are invited to participate. This net operates in cooperation with the Lebanon County Emergency Management Agency.

As brought up at the meetings, many hands make light work. In order to improve the club I’d like to see volunteers for the following teams. It would be best to have two or three people per team, don’t wait to see who else steps up:

In no particular order:

Training Team: (I'm Looking YOUR way Tom)
Formalize the Elmering in the club
Create a training system, i.e. monthly short classes after the meeting, training days, etc
Liaison with the testing group, and take over Ron Small’s “Boot Camp” training for new licensees
Address other HAM/ Emcomm related training needs

PIO & Community outreach team:
Act as press POC during activities
Find and coordinate participation in Community events such as Memorial Day Parade support and National Night out
Increase community awareness of the club and what we do

Contesting Team:
Find new contests for the club/ club members to participate in
Coordinate participation in contests

Fund Raising team:
Find ways to raise money.
Coordinate Fund Raising activities.

Ideas for other teams are also welcome.

Tom RidderWould love to do something like this. Have even thought about it a time or two. As it is. We're in the midst of a major renovation here at the ranch, that consumes an amazing amount of time. Between that undertaking and the grand kids sports schedules, the logistics of building a cabin in the spring/summer up on our property in Huntingdon, it's a struggle just trying to find time to bring the CW 101 net back in to being again. Oh, and on top of all this. I still do manage to work. This may be something better suited for one of the more settled in life/retired club members. Perhaps years down the road but, right now. I just don't have this kind of time to devote to it.

As we are coming into the heart of winter, and they are expecting snow tomorrow, things will only get worse weather wise. Please remember to keep your radios/ batteries charged and alternate power sources ready for any outages. As we all know when the electricity goes, so goes Land Lines, and then the cell towers overload, YOU (the HAM Operator) may be your neighborhood's only communications method, and yes, we have HAM stations at the County EOC as well as several other EOCs and municipal sites throughout Lebanon county. ...
