Formed in 1957, the Edmond Amateur Radio Society is a full-service amateur
radio club. We assist our community with emergency and
weather nets, as well as parade staging and communication. We
conduct licensing classes and technical workshops, and actively participate
in HF operations such as Field Day and special
events. We run weekly nets on VHF/UHF and HF and
have numerous social events throughout the year. For more information, please check out
our About Us tab.
Our board meetings are held at 7:00 PM on the second Tuesday of each month at the Edmond Community Center, 28 E. Main St., Edmond, OK 73034. See Map
We encourage you to come participate in our monthly meetings, which are open to all, including non-members.

EARS News and Updates
EARS Repeater Policies and Procedures
All EARS members and other hams are required to abide by the EARS Repeater Policies and Procedures when using the EARS repeaters.
Please read the EARS Repeater Policies and Procedures
in order to avoid improper transmissions.
Ham Radio Assistance Hotline
If you are a new ham, or perhaps a not-so-new ham who needs assistance with programming a radio, or suggestions for setting up equipment/antennas
please contact the club at
and we will do whatever we can to assist.
EARS HF Elmer Class Suggestions
Do you have a suggestion for the next HF Elmer class to review? We would love to hear from you! Please provide your suggestion below and it will be forwarded to Brian, AE5MT who coordinates these bi-monthly classes. Click on HF Elmer Class Suggestions
to fill out the form.
EARS Elmer class updates January 25th
The Elmer class is rescheduled this month to the 4th Thursday, January 25.
The topic may be VHF Contesting (heads up Technicians!) or it may be Attic Antennas.
The pitch for VHF contesting: Are you a Technician who want to try radio theory without a repeater involved? Maybe you want to make VHF or UHF antennas? Or an HF aficionado who wants to try something else? Try one and see what you can accomplish! (radio contests do not cost money to enter nor do you have to register - just read the one page of rules and give it a try - you don't even need to submit your results)
The pitch for attic antennas: Do you live in an antenna restricted zone? Would you like to get an HF or VHF radio but don't think you can setup any antennas? Join us for a review of some attic installed 'stealth' antennas!
The class is the usual Thursday evening but it's January 25 at 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Edmond Community Center.
