The Kennehoochee Amateur Radio Club is an ARRL Special Service Club that serves Cobb County and the North Georgia area. Our goal of a club is to advance the hobby of amateur radio. We accomplish this through training, mentorship and exhibition.
We have members of our club who work closely with the Boy Scouts of America to train the scouts under thier Radio Merit Badge. Our Merit Badge Councelors spend multiple weekends per month to ensure that all scouts receive the opptrunity to earn their Merit Badge and get a start into the amateur radio hobby. We also host classes in and around Cobb County that allows people to study for their Technical, General and Amateur Extra racio class license.
Our club members enjoy a wide rainge of specitilies within the hobby of amateur radio. The range from antennas, morse code, digital modes and satelite communications. Many of these individuals serve as mentors, or Elmers as it is known in the amateur radio group.
