We are a rural community located in the far western panhandle of Nebraska, 28 miles east of the Wyoming state-line and approximately 225 miles north-northeast of Denver, Colorado. Our population is approximately 32,000 people county wide.
Our club is presently small but we are becoming known as an active supporter of Amateur Radio in the western panhandle of Nebraska. Upon demand, we hold amateur radio classes, Morse code classes, and hold tests for licensing of radio amateurs.
We operate three repeaters :
147.075 + CSQ
147.000 - 103.5
444.125 + 114.8
During the summer months the club provides weather spotting services to the community. The local hams actively support the Scotts Bluff County Emergency Management Agency by providing communications during a disaster or when needed.Through
TriCity Radio Amateur Club maintains an online newsgroup which can be found at:
You can subscribe to this free service and receive periodic updates of club activities, gatherings, VE test session information, and various amateur radio related material. Additionally you can send information to this account, which will then be read by anyone that has subscribed to the group.
We hold informal weekly meetings at the Whistle Stop Cafe on the South Bypass in Scottsbluff, NE. at 8:30 AM each Saturday. Anyone is welcome to attend.
