The San Bruno Amateur Radio Club


Radio

The SBARC is open to all licensed Amateur Radio Operators, and those with an interest in Amateur Radio. Part of our mission is to provide radio communications to the City of San Bruno in a time of need. We operate the radio room at City Hall, and other designated locations. We have monthly meetings, where we discuss Amateur Radio topics and other related items. We participate in training exercises and drills. Occasionally, we have social dinner meetings with other clubs.

We continually strive to expand our knowledge of Radio Science, and promote fellowship among Amateur Radio Operators.

Our July 11th Meeting

Monday July 11th at 6:30pm will be our monthly meeting. Once again it will be a Zoom meeting. At the meeting we're going to have special guests who are going to explain how Internet SDRs work and how they can aid operators trying to make DX contacts. It should be a very interesting evening. After the presentation we're going to go over some updates and overview of how this year's Field Day went. We hope everyone who can, will attend and offer ideas and help with the club's activities.

CERT refresher Spring 2022

CERT refresher 2022

    

This spring five members of the club participated in the San Bruno Fire Department's CERT(Civilian Emergency Response Team) refresher course led by Chief Ari Delay, KM6EBE of the San Bruno Fire Department.

The Saturday session covered putting out fires with small fire extinguishers, triaging victims of mass casualty incidents and a session on "Stop the Bleed" which included hands on training in the proper usage of tourniquets and packing wounds that call for immediate attention. The participants learned among other things that certain wounds can cause a person to "bleed out" in as little as 3 minutes.

This refresher course is a prelude to plans later this summer for a full course for those interested in becoming involved in San Bruno's CERT program. For more information contact the San Bruno Fire Departments website


So you want to become a Ham

Amateur Radio is a very rewarding hobby, but it's also one of the few hobbies that require a license. Every Ham operating today has passed a license exam that allows them to be granted a license from the Federal Communications Commission (the FCC).

The good news is it's very doable and particularly since the requirement to learn Morse code was dropped in 2007. And it's a hobby for all ages. The youngest known Ham in the United States was a young lady of 5 1/2. That's amazing, but it should be reassuring that all the family can join in this hobby.

Today, there are three license classes: The Technician, General and the Amateur Extra Class. With each class the operator gains more privileges in using the available airwaves.

Let's get started toward that Ham license here.

Ham resources

Times have changed. Once the types of information that we needed to learn or just to get help figuring things out was hard to find and limited. That's why we're trying to take a broader look at how to present "resources" on our website.

For instance a Ham club that shares its city with the headquarters of YouTube would be remiss to overlook the abundance of content that is on their site.

For that reason we are going to feature on our home page and inside pages video selections that could be helpful to Hams from beginner to advanced as well as customary links to important websites, podcasts and documents of importance.
