Ventura County Amateur Radio Club

About Us

Our call sign is K6MEP. We invite anyone who is interested in amateur radio to explore our website or attend one of our meetings.

We meet on the second Friday of every month, except in December. Our meetings are held at The Dudley House. Social half-hour begins at 19:00. After a short break, the general meeting begins at 19:30. During the general meeting we discuss club business and have a presentation. After the meeting is adjourned, some members go to Toppers Pizza to socialize. Come by, join us, and share your ham radio interests.

Learn about our history as an amateur radio club.

Current Conditions

Radio communication is impacted by space weather. Changes in ionospheric density and structure will modify the path of HF radio transmission or even block the signal transmission completely. Users of the HF radio band (1 to 30 megahertz range) include ham radio operators, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Defense, and commercial airlines.

September 2021 Meeting

The September 10th 2021 meeting was held at The Dudley House at 19:00 and was conducted by our club President Robert KM6RSS. Our topic was "Boy Scout Radio Merit Badge", presented by Tim Tenopir KN6JGB. Dick Hinson KB0JOU, who visited us during Field Day, joined the club tonight. We had 15 attend the meeting. Both donated and "freebie" items were available and several items were purchased, much to the delight of our Club Inventory Manager, Denney Pistole N6HV. Many thanks to all who brought refreshments!

The October 8th meeting will be held at The Dudley House at 19:00 and will be conducted by our club President Robert KM6RSS. Our topic will be "What is a nanoVNA good for?", presented by Clement Alberts KM6OKZ. Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings.
