Welcome to the Idaho Society of Radio Amateurs

Upcoming Events

Our purpose is to advance the radio art and skills, help club members and others, and have fun doing it. 

We meet weekly on our 2 meter net, and monthly in person at our club meetings. Feel free to participate.

Club Update: 


We had a great meeting last night. Bob Whitlatch with help from Dean Bunnell put on an outstanding Wires-X Presentation and interactive demonstration. Bob walked us through what Wires-X is and then brought in via Wires-X several folks to discuss over the radio Wires-X rooms and connectivity. Bob answered a number of questions about his set up and the Wires-X group on the radio answered additional questions. The finale was a quick QSO with a Ham from Japan and another from New Zealand. Many thanks to Bob and Dean for putting this on.

The next time we meet will be at Field Day.  We will be on the HP Campus.  Coordination for that event will be done via email over the next several weeks.   . 

We now have (or will have come June 1st) five recurring net control operators.   KK7IED, K7NQB, KG7KVI, KI7EZU and myself will be calling the weekly net starting the 2nd of June.

If you want to remain on the email list, please remember to pay your membership dues.  Please renew by downloading the membership form and providing it and your $15 to the club Treasurer either in person at a meeting or by sending it in.  Anyone not current will be removed from the list. 

As always we are looking for topics for future club meetings.  If you have a topic you want to hear about, feel free to email  If you want to present, all the better.

See you at the next meeting!

Reminder: we have a weekly net on Sunday nights at 7:00 PM.  All are welcome to check in.  The ISRA Repeater is 146.94 with a PL of 100.  We look forward to hearing you on the air!
