We are the Los Angeles Area Council of Amateur Radio Clubs — We are a none profit Amateur Radio organization, a Council formed of Delegates. The Delegates represent their own amateur radio club within Los Angeles county area of Southern California.
We share ideas for membership drive, News about Events e.g. Races, Fairs, Club Speakers, putting it all together LAX Convention, and a pitstop for the club.
Our meetings are the first Tuesday of every other month starting
in January. If the meeting falls on a holiday, the date may change
a week a head.
The Council is supported by annual dues of $10.00 (raised to $20 in 2014) paid by each member club. Each club selects their delegate and an alternate. Our territory is all of but only Los Angeles County. The function of the Council is to spearhead progress on issues affecting radio amateurs in the Los Angeles Section of the ARRL Southwestern Division.
The Council provided guidance and input in achieving a ham-friendly antenna ordinance for the unincorporated areas of the county. That ordinance is being used as a guide for numerous city ordinances under consideration.

The meeting starts at 7:30p.m. in the Toyota Museum, North Torrance. The address is 19600 Van Ness Avenue, Torrance 90501.
It's about 1/2 mile south of 190th street in a rather new warehouse-type building on the west facing side of the street (across the street from a storage tank in the refinery area).

Arriving a few minutes early will allow attendees to tour the museum.
Some of us will meet for dinner prior at around 6:00pm at Norm's Restaurant located at 18705 Hawthorne Blvd., Torrance CA 90501 on the southbound side just south of 182nd street. It's located about 10 minutes from the museum.

Ham Radio History Request:
I'm looking for some historical information about ham radio in LA in 1971. In particular, HF links going to San Jose.
It seems like a strange request, but the younger hams these days don't work HF and I know back then there were a lot of Nets people would check in to (I don't know if they exist still or if they have declined over time or are as active as in the 60s and 70s). Personally, I lack a lot of HF knowledge since I became a ham to do AMSAT stuff. Any information, including possible ARES/MARS work in the LA and southern California to San Jose area would be great.
