Remote Controlled H.F. Station

As part of our effort to help local hams who cannot mount their own antennas, W3HAC keeps a remote-controlled H.F. Station available for member use.

Weekly Nets

On Monday nights at 8pm, we host a weekly net on the K3MRC repeater at 145.430 (-600 offset) with a P.L. Tone of 114.8Hz. The net is very informal and is usually driven by a “question of the week.”

To join, just grab your VHF radio, and jump in. We’re always happy to help hams who are just getting started and/or new to the area.

Monthly Meetings

W3HAC holds virtual meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm.

We focus on a range of topics related to our core initiatives, including rebuilding ARES Emergency Communications in D.C., and helping members be the hams follow their interests whether they have a ham radio in their home or not.

To join, sign up for email via our Google Group, and we’ll send you an invite to the next one.
