Club Station

The Des Moines Radio Amateurs Association is developing a club station at the Fort Des Moines Museum and Education Center, 75 E. Army Post Road, Des Moines, IA.  The station currently has HF, VHF and UHF capabilities.

The club station is scheduled to be open the third Saturday of the month (with the exception of June) from 10am until 2pm.  There will be a member of the club station committee present during these scheduled times to answer questions, help adjust equipment and troubleshoot any issues.  The committee member may also act as a control operator allowing an unlicensed person or licensed person exceeding their privileges to get on the air with the privileges of the control operator.

Those wanting to operate the club station that are unable to make the scheduled hours should contact the club station committee members by email to see if someone can accommodate a preferred date/time.
