Ida Crown Amateur Radio Club is licensed by the FCC as KD9EUS. The club operates its own amateur radio station capable of worldwide communications. We offer training, so students can earn their own license. We will also provide hands-on activities to enhance learned radio/electronics concepts and to make it a fun experience. For many, amateur radio offers a lifelong hobby and a vehicle for unlimited learning.
