Are you a new ham? An old ham? Maybe a wondering ham looking for more in the ham radio hobby? One way to get more out of your hobby is to join a club. Join the St. Louis Suburban Radio Club!
The St. Louis Suburban Radio Club is a full service club offering insight into everything from contesting to digital modes to working with very low power making contacts 2500+ miles away. SLSRC welcomes new hams to our meetings as we understand it’s intimidating showing up to a club meeting when you don’t know anyone. SLSRC is the largest club in the area and coordinates many activities outside the club meetings including a monthly area breakfast, education classes geared towards upgrading, tailoring to the new ham with back to basics & elmering classes, a holiday dinner and operating events, including Field Day!. You don’t have to be a member to come to a meeting or a monthly breakfast, so try us out and come see what SLSRC has to offer!!! Click here to find out when the next meeting is.
Our monthly club meetings typically consist of a quick 30 min business meeting and then a presentation of ham related material. Our members present on a wide range of topics, everything from Software Defined Radio to propagation to the latest weather disaster in the St. Louis area. Before the meeting starts, we complete introductions by giving your name and radio call sign. If you don’t have one, all you need to do is say “I don’t have a license yet” and that’s it. If your looking for more info about licensing, we can point you in the right direction!
We understand joining a club might not be for you, but we ask that you consider joining us for many many reasons, as joining a club can be very rewarding.

Make sure it’s the club you feel comfortable with, who share your similar interests and allow you to grow your hobby on your terms.
