Area Ham Interests/Assistance Registry

Area Ham Interests/Assistance Registry

Your ham radio needs can be better served by letting the clubs and fellow hams know your interests, areas you need help, or areas you can assist other club members. Eligibility to list your interests in this registry is as follows:

  • OCRA & DFMA club members who have completed an interest survey.
  • Non member licensed hams completing an interest survey at an OCRA or DFMA club meeting

Once entered into the registry, if you need to update your listing, use your registry private access link to update your profile, or at the next OCRA or DFMA meeting, enter your updates on an interest survey form.

Hams already listed can do an online update, using their access link obtained by clicking here and following the directions listed. The OCRA & DFMA clubs will use this information to plan meeting presentations, club work sessions, web site articles and encourage interested hams to participate in the combined OCRA/DFMA ARRL Field Day..

Great Time to Update the Hamshack

From Keith, W1KES

Last month, we repainted our bonus room, A.K.A. dad’s shack after 17 years. Additionally, we added new furniture and shelves. I have spent the last several weeks organizing and optimizing the space. My shack also serves as my home office, which has received more use this past week than the previous year. With kids out of school until mid-May, I plan to spend many hours working and “hamming” in my recently renovated space.
