Where is the Lincoln Amateur Radio Club?
The Lincoln Amateur Radio Club is a general-service club for Amateur Radio operators in and near Lincoln and Lancaster County, Nebraska. There are also members from well outside this geographical area.

What frequencies does the Club use?
The Lincoln Amateur Radio Club owns and operates the KØKKV repeater on a frequency of 146.760 MHz (-). Though no sub-audible tone is required for access, the repeater generates a 100.0 Hz tone to help with intermod in the downtown area.

This is the primary ARES® and Skywarn repeater for the area. When ARES® or Skywarn is activated, the subaudible tone is changed to 123.0 Hz. This is often used by local hams to keep radios quiet from normal day-to-day chatter until there is an activation.

What does membership cost?
Annual memberships are $25.00 for a full member, $10.00 for an associate member. Memberships run from January 1 thru December 31.

What does the Club do?
The Lincoln Amateur Radio Club is extremely active in Public Service activities. ARES® and Skywarn resources are drawn primarily from members of the Club. Other Public Service events include the Lincoln Marathon, the Crop Walk, the Cornhusker State Games, and many other events where our duties are primarily to insure that the participants are safe or summon assistance for injuries or equipment malfunctions. These activities allow us to hone our skills while providing invaluable communications during emergencies.

The Club is very active, offering a variety of classes and information. Monthly testing sessions are available for anyone wanting to obtain their first Amateur Radio license or upgrade an existing one. Other courses are available with sponsorship from local volunteer organizations, the American Red Cross and  state and local Emergency Management. We even have classes on how to sling some solder!

A monthly newsletter, the Lincoln LOG, is mailed to all licensed Lancaster County Amateur Radio Operators and to LARC members anywhere.  The LOG offers information about upcoming Club meetings, reports on events where Hams are needed, and articles about recent activities where local Hams participated.
