About Us

We are a ARRL Affiliate Club.  We support many community activities such as the ARC Walk, Downey Street Fair, Downey Rose Float Association, Christmas Parade, The Lions Club annual Tour de Sewer and many more.

In addition, we have an active ARRL Volunteer Examiner team which conducts exams every other month (please see VE pages).
