The Radio Amateur Group (RAG) at California Yacht Club provides many valuable and interesting services to the Club and to the Community. We provide service to boaters and others via our free, long distance Winlink HF and VHF Email System. We also provide communications and support for CYC Sail, Power Fleet, and Race activities. Just as important is the CYC Amateur Radio (HAM) community that we foster and provide facilities at the club to support. The RAG has its own multi-radio HF/VHF/UHF voice, packet and data club station with a club call sign of K6CYC, and has been in operation since 1984.
In 2014 the Radio Amateur Group will sponsor our sixth annual Field Day BBQ on Saturday, June 28 at 11 a.m. Complementary food including hot dogs, hamburgers and tri-tip sandwiches will be served starting at 1 p.m. Come and join our party. Listen to music, talk to amateurs around the world, and make new friends.
The Radio Amateur Group strongly urges all CYC members who have amateur licenses to participate in the Club's regattas. Members from our group are available to handle communications for all Club activities.
If any member is interested in obtaining an amateur radio license, please call the front desk and ask when the next class is available.
