    Does one have to be licensed to join your organization? I’m looking for a group that had some form of trading/assistance to obtain a license.

      No, you don’t need a license and we help many people get their license. We have an upcoming class coming up and will post the information shortly. You can also go to hamtestonline.com and practice taking the tests.

    I’m new to the Rio Hondo repeaters. I know there was (or is…) a 440 repeater, is it still active?

There is a net held on their every Wednesday evening following our regular Net which starts at 8pm. None of our Repeater are Link at this time, since we are in the process of up grade equipment. Our 2m will soon a Digital one as well. Hope this helps! Feel free to come to our next meeting this coming Monday as we get ready for Field day. The link for our Newsletter has all the info needed.

    My father, Lee Wong (WB6GVB), passed away, and I’m cleaning out my parents’ house in Hacienda Heights. He used to be a member of the Rio Hondo amateur radio club. While cleaning out the garage, I found two boxes of antenna hardware. I don’t know what exactly they are or whether or not they are complete. I would be happy to donate them to anyone who could use them. Please contact me via the email address I’m including in this form. I live out of town, but I’m back in Hacienda Heights working on the house about once a month.
