KY4ARC was formed in
February 2006. Like most clubs it
has seen its membership fluctuate
over the years. When the hobby
first went to the "no code tech"
licensing system in the early
‘90's there was a drastic increase
in the number of folks entering
the hobby. For a while, the
numbers have dwindled - we think
in large part due to the
widespread use of cell phones and
other communication devices.
However, recently, we now see a
renewed interest in the hobby with
the move away from Morse Code
Our current membership is
17, as of 20160507.
