The application for a special club ham license call is in process wth the FCC. The application for W6FHF, K6FHF or N6FHF vanity call will better identify the club. We should know which one we get about the end of July.

Who We Are: The Foothill Flyers Radio Club is a club within the Foothill Flyers Running Club. This club will encourage trail runners to get their ham licenses, help them to become familiar with Ham radios and procedures, and to volunteer at trail races and related events. Emergency Communications and runner safety is the primary focus.

Purpose: Amateur Radio can play a critical part in trail runner safety in remote areas where cell phones do not work. Therefore, it is imperative that sweeps and aid stations use volunteers who are capable trail runners as well as being licensed hams. Carrying a ham radio with you on training runs in the mountains can make the difference in getting help if you are injured. Ham radio is the first line of communications in times of disasters like earthquakes.

Membership: Membership is limited to licensed Radio Amateurs who are current members of the Foothill Flyers Running Club.
There are no dues and members may opt in or out at any time.
