Share a Radio




If you have never been on HF and would like to find out what all the excitement is about, the Share a Radio program provides a way for you to get acquainted! Share a Radio allows hams who have little or no HF experience or who do not currently have an HF station to team up with hams who do have HF stations for a demonstration or to get some time on the air.

When visiting a station, you may use your own call sign and log while operating under your own license class privileges; or with the station owner as control operator, you may enjoy the "Extra Class" experience.

The operators listed below have generously offered to share their ham shacks with you. Please keep in mind that these are privately owned stations, and that dates and times are at the discretion of the station owner. If you would like to visit and operate another ham's station, contact one of the hams listed below to make an appointment! They would all be pleased to have you visit!
