Well this weekend I learned about another Award Based Special Interest Group of Amateurs with neat ideas!
Welcome to the Great Outdoors Radio Club! This club was formed so all amateur radio operators who love the outdoors would have a place to call home. The only requirements to join this club are that you must hold a valid amateur radio license and sometimes operate portable away from your home qth.
If you would like to join this club, please check out the GORC Website at http://www.thegorc.org for instruction.
send an email to
gorc at wa3wsj.org. Please include your callsign, name and address. [Edit – updated August 22nd, 2014]
Sounds like a group with great ideas and a lot of fun, so I’ve become GORC #173.
[Edit -updated on August 22nd, 2014 – GORC is strong and active while under new leadership. Thank you to Randy KB4QQJ,
Trustee K4INC The Great Outdoors Radio Club, for the updated information!]
