Running the club store is a big job, and for every hour our volunteers are selling things there is about as many hours dedicated to loading, unloading, ordering, inventory, pricing, and other tasks involved. We're looking for another volunteer to help our existing staff. We want to both lighten the load for existing staff, and perhaps expand to make our store available at more ham radio events.

Club Bookstore

Club Bookstore

The Davis County Amateur Radio Club maintains a well-stocked bookstore of educational materials published by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and other Amateur Radio Publishers. Our purpose is to provide a source of books and amateur related materials to assist in educating club members and those seeking to obtain amateur radio licenses. If there is a specific book or publication you are interested in, we may be able to order it for you. Please let us know at our monthly club meetings. In addition to books, you'll find a wide assortment of antennas, cables, and connectors. The bookstore is usually open a half hour before and half hour after club meetings.

Mike Jones & Mel Parkes  manage the bookstore for the club. Look on our "Club Officers" page for information on how to contact them.
