Ham radio use has come a long way on the Rubicon over the last decade.
The Rubicon Trail Foundation, driven by Dennis Mayer, has made sure there is a year-round repeater system in the Rubicon valley. This allows any Rubicon Trail user to use a ham radio to reach out to Sacramento and the Tahoe area with a handheld radio.
This system has literally saved lives since it’s installation.
Do you have your ham license? Do you want to get it?
July 19-21, at the Boomtown Casino in Nevada, the Nevada State Amateur Radio Convention will be held. Website: NVCON.org
On Saturday, July 20th, you can do a one day ham cram. The class is from 8am-3:30pm with the test immediately following. This is the quickest way to get your license.
Also at the convention are vendors, forums and a ham swap meet.
