In September 2019 ARRL designated SMRA as a Special Service Club!

Ralph K3HQI, ARRL EPA Affiliated Clubs Coordinator, presented the SSC Banner and Plaque to SMRA President Jack NC3O and SMRA Membership Secretary Andrew W3AND during the September SMRA monthly meeting.

A club that exists to go above and beyond for their communities and for Amateur Radio is what defines a Special Service Club (SSC).  They are the leaders in their Amateur Radio communities who provide active training classes, publicity programs and actively pursue technical projects and operating activities:

  • New Ham Development and Training
  • Public Relations
  • Emergency Communications
  • Technical Advancement
  • Operating Activities
  • Miscellaneous Activities
