Club Meeting Times, Location and Testing

Due to COVID-19 we will be holding our monthly business meeting on the club repeater (147.220) at 7:00. Also, our Saturday morning Coffee will happen virtually on the repeater at 9:30.

The club meets every month on the first non-holiday Monday of the month at the Salvation Army Church at 1905 Henderson St. in Helena, MT. The meeting usually consists of a Business portion where decisions are made regarding the club and also usually a program portion where we have a speaker or other presentation of interest to the club.


The meetings always start at 7:00 pm local time.


For the use of out of town visitiors, we have included a page with a Google map on it. It can be used to give you directions from just about anywhere. Just click here.
