Member type

Field Day for 2019 will be scaled back from previous years due to low participation by members. In past years, it took several members to set up tents, antennas, tables and generators. At the March club meeting, Field Day was discussed, and the general consensus was not to get the permit for West Hills (a savings of $140), and to look for another way to have Field Day that was much less labor intensive. Stay tuned for futher developments.

LARC Makes the ARRL Homepage!

LARC was mentioned in an article relating to the Cow Harbor Race. Look for it also in the ARRL E-News later this month.


Are You a Digital Expert?
Do You Use Digital in Your Ham Hobby?

Club members have expressed an interest in learning more about digital in amateur radio. LARC is looking for someone who has digital experiance to make a presentation to the club.


Nothing extravagant, just a simple presentation to get a discussion going. 


Interested? Jump on the LARC page and volunteer!

.210 Needs a Workout!

The .210 repeater has never sounded better! After months of hard work and new hardware, LARC has a comms system that is one of the best on Long Island. Now what is needed is for our members to get on the air and use it! .210 is waaaaay too quiet. Have a mobile rig? Shout out! Have a HT? Stick it on your belt and work the airwaves.


Let's make .210 sweat!!!

Huntington Withdraws from ARES Program


Per Steven Hines (N2PQJ) - ARES Emergency Coordinator (EC), in a letter to RACES Regional Coordinator Region 1, ARRL ARES NLI SEC, and NLI Section Manager...


"In a majority vote, the Huntington group has decided to be a NY State RACES only organization as of April 1, 2019.

Effective that date also will be my resignation as ARES Emergency Coordinator (EC).  I will remain the Town’s RACES Radio Officer.

Operationally our group will function the same, our withdraw is purely administrative in nature.

Our group is displeased with the current guidelines of the new ARRL ARES Plan, regardless if these requirements are or are not being enforced by our NLI Section..."
