Are you ready to take your first amateur radio (ham) license test or upgrade to another level?  Then let us help! The Anoka County Radio Club holds V.E. amateur radio testing sessions on most every 2nd Saturday of the month. We are ready to test new and upgrading hams in all the FCC elements. Test sessions start at 9:00 a.m. and we continue to take walk-ins until 10:00 a.m.  We test at the Blaine City Hall in the Mark Stack Room.  Check the club's website for any updates or changes to the schedule.  For more info, please contact Shep Shepardson N0NMZ at N0NMZ@AnokaRadio.org.

HF in the Park
August 9th starting at noon in Long Lake Regional Park

Come on over and set up your radio gear, HF, VHF, Satellite, or whatever and enjoy the company of like-minded friends. Check out their ideas and set-ups, and operating styles. This is not a contest, just a place for hams and those interested in Amateur Radio to get together and share the hobby.  HF in the Park will be held each second-Saturday of April thru October.

We will meet at the main pavilion of the Long Lake Regional Park (1500 Old Highway 8, New Brighton). Follow the main entrance road west until you cross the rail road tracks then take the next right up to the parking area where we will be set up. There are bathrooms but there will be  no  power hook ups. There are many trees and open areas or for antenna placement, along with open areas available to set up a table to work from.
