Now is the opportunity to sit for your technician or upgrade your current license.
We administer all elements of the amateur radio exams every OTHER month, on the first Saturday of the month, at the Cox Science Center in West Palm Beach.

Saturday in the Park
This Saturday, with FLARC, we are going to attempt some HF slow scan work, exchanging real-time photos of each other.
If you’re experienced in this, come on down and be part of our team. If you’ve never done it before and like to see it, well, come on down for that too!
That’s Saturday the 25th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Directions can be found here – Saturday in The Park & Directions – WPBARG Forums
We welcome all visitors. Come one, come all!

We will be having our monthly meeting Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. I am excited to see everyone and talk about last month’s Saturday in the Park and what we’re going to be doing at this month’s Saturday in the Park. It’s going to be fun and a challenge for sure! We welcome all, whether licensed or not. More information is here – This month’s Saturday in the Park – Calling all slow scan experts – WPBARG Forums
I am equally excited to introduce to you this month’s guest speaker and his presentation.
Mark Wohlschlegel, WC3W, will be our guest speaker at our monthly meeting, March 22, 2023, at the Cox Science Center. Mark has been a ham for 60 years, lives in Palm Beach Gardens, and has recently taken over the CQ DX Marathon Program as of the first of the year. He would like to share with our club some of the details of the program and how simple it is to participate. Over the last two years, the DX Marathon Program has been the fastest growing DX Program in the world! In 2022, it grew +46% over the same period last year. As with every month, all are welcome to attend. The CQ DX Marathon groups.io page is here – https://groups.io/g/dxmarathon
