The Bishop Amateur Radio Club
The Bishop Amateur Radio Club welcome's you to the world of Ham Radio. We are located in the Owens Valley between the Eastern Sierra and White Mountains. Our repeater (146.940- with a 103.5 pl) is located in the White Mountains at an elevation of over 10,000 feet.
Ham radio is one of the most exciting, friendly, useful, educational and high-tech hobbies around. Hams include a diverse group of people around the world -- engineers, scientists, doctors, astronauts, students, teachers, boaters, pilots, retirees and famous celebrities. You never know who you're going to talk to "on-the-air" next.
Ham Radio is a federally licensed and administrated radio service. You will study for and take exams to acquire your operating license. After successfully passing your exams you will be assigned a call sign. Anyone, regardless of age, gender or physical ability can get a license. Once licensed, Ham Radio Operators use their radio stations (including two-way radios, computers, antennas, satellites and other equipment) to make contacts around the world from their homes, cars, boats and planes. The following are some of the things you can do with Ham Radio:

EmComm Simplex Net... The Bishop Amateur Radio Club's simplex net is a short net on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 p.m. (19:30) on 146.940 simplex and will precede the 8PM nightly net.
