Our members come from diverse backgrounds and varying levels of experience in amateur radio. We have members who have recently received their license, and members who have over half a century of experience in ham radio. Our members come from all walks of life – retired military, doctors and nurses, millwrights and metal fabricators, mechanics, lawyers, technicians, cooks, engineers, managers, and many other professions. Amateur radio is a common thread and each and every one of us in this group, regardless of background shares this interest.
True, our interests within the hobby vary as much as our backgrounds, but what we hold in common is the love for this hobby. This unites us all. More than that, no one person in the club “knows it all.” As a result we share our skills, knowledge and our own interests. The end result is a greater enjoyment as well as an opportunity to grow from the experiences for every member that participates in the club.
The club, through it’s members, tries to create an atmosphere where people truly feel like they can ask the “dumb question” because (it isn’t dumb, and) they will never be judged poorly for it. Ham radio is so multi-faceted that no single person ever can know it all. Chances are, no matter what the question, someone else in the group either has the same question or has asked it themselves in the past, and someone else will know at least part of the answer!
