The FRRL is a club for radio amateurs offering knowledge sharing, fun, events, education, and license testing.  

Our meetings include a short business meeting and a program of special interest to amateur radio operators.  We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM in Batavia.

We also have a "Net" on our 2-meter repeater each Tuesday at 7:30 PM with the exception of our meeting nights.

In December we will have our Christmas meeting including:

  • Feel free to bring eatable goodies to share if you wish.  
  • Also, bring non-perishable items or paper items to be donated to the Northern Illinois Food Pantry.  The drop off point will be someone's car in the parking lot before you come in -- if they are out there.
  • We are also having a White Elephant exchange again.  Bring something from your shack or parts bin as a gift if you wish to participate.  It will be placed in a bag on the table.  If you brought stuff, you'll receive stuff.  Hopefully "other" good stuff.  Good luck!
  • Annual election of officers and Ham of the Year.  Thanks to the nominating committee Paul Mandrik, AC9BS, Mike Urso, K9FE, and Harry Jones, K9DXA for gathering the nominees listed below.  Ham of the year is an award to any club member that you believe made the greatest contribution to the hobby (not just the club) over the last year.  It's a write in only ballot so think it over.  The Ham of the year will not be announced until the January banquet.
