Welcome to the Idaho Society of Radio Amateurs

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.

President’s Corner: 

Greetings and Happy Holiday Season to All,

I hope your Thanksgiving was everything you wanted it to be and you are now home safely and back operating!  I am putting together a proposed list of topics for 2024 ISRA Club Meetings.  If you have a topic you want to hear about, feel free to email k7bse14694@gmail.com.  If you want to present, all the better. 

Nominations are open for board positions.  We would like all nominations to be in by the end of December.  Ballots will be emailed via the email list in January. 

Our weekly net continues to have good check-ins.  We had lots of check ins on Sunday Night.  I think we had about 22 check ins.   Checking into a net is a great way to stay involved in this increasingly busy time of year and also validate radios and antenna capabilities.  I tend to check into several on different VHF/UHF bands during the week myself to keep up with what is going on in the Ham Radio Community.  If you are looking for a net to check into in addition to our Sunday Night ISRA Net, there is a link on this page that will take you to a list of nets that take place here in the area along with the frequencies and PL tones associated with the individual repeaters the nets use. 

On the topic of Nets, if you want to give being Net Control a try, feel free to contact me at k7bse14694@gmail.com and I’ll put you in a slot for the Sunday Net.  You don’t have to commit to doing it regularly unless you want to.  Happy to have guest Net Controls. 

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!
