Tom, W3ROK, has compiled the reasons one should join an amateur radio club and posted them to the Mason County Amateur Radio Club website. Some of the reasons include:
- It provides contact with local radio amateurs.
- You can get help building a station.
- Clubs often sponsor license exam classes.
- Clubs make ham radio more visible in the community.
- Clubs organize activities such as hamfests, scout radio merit badge sessions, and Field Day.
- You can often borrow infrequently used test equipment instead of buying it.
- It’s fun!
