Our mission...to promote amateur radio both as a service and a hobby and to encourage and assist persons to become licensed and current licensees to advance.



Hillsdale County is located in south-central Michigan, bordering both Indiana and Ohio.  Club membership is open to any any licensed amateur radio operator, but you don't need to be a licensed ham to participate in club events or attend our meetings.  If you're not licensed, we can help you get licensed.  Club events are open to anyone, so check out the calendar and attend an event.  For more information email us.


Our club has been affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) since May, 2003.  Founded in 1914, the ARRL is the national membership association for amateur radio operators.  The ARRL is a not-for-profit organization that promotes interest in amateur radio communications and experimentation, represents US radio amateurs in legislative matters, and maintains fraternalism and a high standard of conduct among amateur radio operators.
