Club Info

Our Amateur Radio Club has been an active part of Sterling and Rock Falls, Illinois for over 60 years.
We enjoy an active part in the training and testing of future Amateur Radio Members. We participate in the annual “Hamfest for Sterling”, and we have an active “Emergency Communications” group of “Trained Weather Spotters” ready to assist in the event of any emergency where normal communication might be affected in Whiteside County.
“Radio Communications” with other Amateur (Ham) Operators is the nature of our enjoyment and service. We look forward to meeting you.
