The Fort Washington Amateur Radio Club started on 10 September 2013 with 4 Amateur Radio Operators in Fort Washington. We are now at 17 members. We enjoy the hobby outdoors and in. We meet at the Fort Washington Medical Center every second Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the cafeteria and on the air each Sunday at 2000L on 28.400MHz. Join in the fun. Get Licensed, Get on the Air, Say something.

 

The purpose of the Fort Washington Amateur Radio Club is to:

 

  • Communicate by providing radio coverage across the nation to promote on-air participation of members and future members, to provide reliable alternate communications services, and to help educate less experienced Hams on Amateur radio techniques

 

  • Educate the population on Amateur radio by mentoring and training youth groups, law enforcement, hikers, boaters, fishermen and anyone who potentially use communications services on the proper techniques and licensing requirements to operate on the air and by sharing knowledge and techniques with junior Amateur members to make them better operators 

 

  • Serve the community by providing licensing exams, merit badge counseling, local area Ham fests, DX and Fox Hunt contests, repeater services, long distance HF and EchoLink nets.
