As you enter the Fairgrounds driving North from the South entrance off Nelson road, the Clover building is the building you will see directly in front of you. It is not the smaller building off to the right, which houses the current Fairground offices.

Announcing the LARC Mentoring Program

We are pleased to announce the release of the LARC Mentoring Program.  The program will assist members less familiar with radio operation to get on the air and build confidence in their radio abilities.  Mentors can also assist members on technical issues such as radio and equipment setup, and antenna configuration.  

LARC members interested in advancing their knowledge by learning new digital modes or moving from local VHF to HF and DX activities should take advantage of this learning opportunity.  Mentors will be matched based upon interests and knowledge level.
