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 the Morse Code requirement.

IF you are interested in taking a test for amateur radio license, contact a member of our ARRL VE team to arrange for the test. We will schedule the test or you can come to any club meeting at 6:00 PM . Effective immediately you must have a frn (federal registration number)before the test can be given.
