Today we are also known as the "JBER Radio Club" as we are a combination club of AF and Army members.  We continue the effort in maintaining a fully operational station for our Active Duty Members, their Dependents, Civilian Employees and Retirees.  We are co-located with the Civil Air Patrol in building 16322 also known as R1 North.

We are capable of operating from 160m to 33cm.  HF antennas are a (HyGain TH-7 Thunderbird) Triband Yagi (circa 1985), a modern 43 ft DX Engineering Vertical (2012) and a pair of HF loops mounted utility poles.  We also have a Zero 5 Vertical (10-40m) setup roof mounted.  6 meters uses a 5 element yagi.  The rest of the VHF and up use a combination of VHF/UHF Yagis and verticals.  HF Station consists of an Yeasu FT 857D, Kenwood TS-570S, IC-7200, Icom IC-7610 and Icom IC-PW1 (one kilowatt solid state amplifier).  

We also have in the station multiple VHF radios with KPC TNC's for things like APRS,
Digipeaters and even VHF (1200) and UHF (9600) Winlink RMS's.

We have rigs like the D-710G Kenwood for UHF 9600 Baud Packet and a Bridgecom
BCM-220 on a KPC 9612+ TNC for 9600 Baud Packet on 1.25 meters.
Even a Motorola GTX 900mhz setup.
For Field Day we have in out go kit-  IC-756ProII and Icom V/UHF Dual Band mobile.  A3S Tri Band Yagi, Double G5RV dipole.
Plus all the bits and pieces that Hams always need in the field.
