AMATEUR RADIO LICENSE TESTING:
HARK offers FREE amateur radio license testing through the Laurel VEC. Tests can be given at 2:30 P.M. on the 3rd Tuesday monthly and at other times UPON REQUEST to Duane, KD0KYK, our VEC (Volunteer Examiner Coordinator). To request a test session, please contact Duane via email. To expedite setting-up your test session, please include in your email: 1) Your full name, address, and phone number; 2) Call sign (if already a ham), current license class and FRN; 3) If you will be a new ham, it's best to obtain your FRN first to avoid giving your SSN. Please see the FCC website at https://apps.fcc.gov/cores to create a username and obtain an FRN.

Everyone is welcome, whether you give a detailed weather report for your location or just tell us how it looks and feels. Pat (N7FHB) is DAWN Manager and runs the morning net. Pink (K7ILA) runs the afternoon net at 1600 hrs. Dave (K7RPM) is backup.
Hassayampa Amateur Radio Klub (HARK) began in 2004 with Donna (KD7ZIJ) and Larry (KD7ZIK now KW7I) at North Ranch Escapees Park in Congress, Arizona. HARK became an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Affiliated Club in 2009. Doug (N0DAJ) served as charter president 2009-2017. Duane (KD0KYK) was our president 2017-2019. Brandi (W6FPT), Terry (NE7TS), and Duane, (KD0KYK), kept the fort standing in 2020 and their help is greatly appreciated! Pink, (K7ILA) is the new president and looks forward to more participation from our very diverse and talented membership. See History Doc for more detail.
