KM4CJ Radio "Go Kit"

A Go-Kit is made up of a portable "Amateur radio" station and assorted personal gear that can quickly be assembled to respond to a "Call To Service".  What the kit will consist of depends on the type of incidents being responded to and potential extent of the events.  Being Prepared and Equipped to serve, enables rapid deployment!

UARC October Meeting: Homebrew Night


Our October meeting is the annual Homebrew Night, one of the most popular meetings of the year. It is a time when, if you've recently built a piece of amateur radio equipment, you will have a chance to show it off and tell everyone all about it. Even if you haven't built anything lately, you will probably want to come and see how creative some of your fellow hams have been.

Anything that can be used in amateur radio and hasn't been shown at a previous UARC Homebrew night is an eligible project. Some projects, like towers and antennas, may be impractical to bring in. If that's the case, bring some files of photos, drawings, performance data, and/or diagrams, to show what you have done. The video projector will be available. You can bring a thumb drive and use our computer, or bring your own with a VGA output.

The meeting will be on Thursday, October 13, at 7:30 P.M. in the Warnock Engineering Building in room L102. To reach the “L” three-digit numbered rooms, take the elevator in the southwest corner of the main floor down to level “L1.” (The elevators near the east entrance don't go there!)

UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M., in the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. The meeting during the University's fall semester of 2016 will be in room L102. See the map for information on finding the building. The room number varies depending on availability.

Of course, the meeting will include the “standard” meeting features:
  • Availability of ARRL books from Brett, the “book lady”
  • An opportunity to join UARC or renew your membership
  • An opportunity to join ARRL or renew your membership
  • The chance to meet face-to-face the people you talk to on the air
  • The “Meeting after the meeting”: A chance to enjoy pizza or other gastronomic delights with other hams. It happens at Litza's Pizza, 716 E. 400 South.
  • The “Meeting before the meeting”: A similar get-together for those who can leave work early enough to get there by 5:15 P.M. These are held at “The Village Inn,” 910 E. 400 South.

Ham Radio Outlet - Press Release for Immediate Release

Ham Radio Outlet - Press Release for Immediate Release

July 12, 2016

RE: HRO-Milwaukee, Amateur Electronic Supply's closing on 7/28/2016

On July 1, 2016 Amateur Electronic Supply (AES) made the decision to close down their entire organization and terminate all retail operations at their Las Vegas, Cleveland, Orlando and Milwaukee locations.

Upon hearing the news, and with the concurrence of AES senior management, Ham Radio Outlet (HRO) sent senior management to each location to interview the staff with hopes of acquiring some of the Amateur Radio retail employee talent in each of the current AES locations.

Together with this interview process, HRO examined what it would take to perhaps acquire one or more of the AES store locations. At the time of these interviews, many opportunities were explored with current AES senior management.

We are very excited to announce that HRO was successful in providing offers of employment to a number of soon to be former AES employees and that to some, we have offered positions that involve HRO sponsored and funded relocation.

We are also extremely pleased to announce that, after the closing of the Milwaukee AES location on July 28, 2016, Ham Radio Outlet will begin an extensive remodeling project to create the largest Amateur Radio retail showroom in North America. We will open our newest and largest Ham Radio Outlet in Milwaukee at the end of August 2016.

Effective at the closing of AES on July 28, 2016, all former AES locations' direct telephone numbers and toll free telephone numbers will be redirected to the closest HRO location so as to not disrupt providing service to the AES customer base. Additionally effective on July 28, 2016, the www.aesham.com website will be directed to www.hamradio.com also so as not to disrupt service for the AES online customer base.

Steve Gilmore, National Sales Manager for HRO states, "We are extremely excited to have a store in the Central Northern part of the United States. It will minimize shipping times for our products to be able to be delivered in 2 days or less in most of the lower 48 United States. We are building a showplace that all must come see! It will be expansive with massive inventory levels and a large all encompassing demonstration area featuring nearly all of the Amateur Radio transceivers on the market today."

Robert Ferrero, President of HRO tells us, "It is with great pleasure that we are able to continue Terry Sterman and Phil Majerus' legacy of providing a fantastic Amateur Radio store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is our immediate goal to have the largest, most well stocked Amateur Radio retail store in North America and perhaps even the world."

HRO is a family owned business with 14 sales locations throughout the United States which includes a formidable presence on the Internet, making it the largest Ham Radio dealership in the world.

HRO has been continually expanding with our most recent location in Plano, Texas which opened on February 2, 2015. HRO is also continuing to evolve with the relocation and expansion of our Portland store which will open on July 25, 2016 at 14405 SW Pacific Highway, Portland, Oregon 97224.

Ham Radio Outlet - Milwaukee is located at 5710 W Good Hope Rd, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It will be open for business at the end of August 2016.
