Welcome to the Rome Radio Club website! The Rome Radio Club has proudly served the local community for over 80 years!
We are planning to operate class 4A - plus a "GOTA" (Get On
The Air) station (specifically for those new to operating
HF, new to contests, or just rusty)
The 4 main stations will use the club call, W2OFQ and the
GOTA station will use Mike Little's call, KB2CCD.
There will 3 radio-active shelters: The club's new monster tent will house three stations (#1, #2, GOTA) , N2MG's tent (unless he brings a pop-up trailer) will house one station (#3) , and KB2DLF's trailer will house the digital station (#4)
For more information please contact our president, Lou Ciotti (K2LRV) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
