Elmendorf Amateur Radio Society
Navy/Marine MARS Station
Click to see where we are in this picture.
The Elmendorf Amateur Radio Society (EARS) is the latest in a
long series of clubs that have been associated with KL7AIR
since 1948. The current club EARS started in 1996 and
continues today in the ongoing effort to insure there will
always be a working Military Amateur Recreation Station
on Elmendorf AFB.
The KL7AIR Call was first assigned to Hams on Elmendorf AFB
back in 1948 and has been in continous use since.
Up until the Ninties the call was part of the
Active Duty AF Military Affiliated
Radio Service or MARS station.
In addition to the Amateur Recreation Station the Club
supports both ARES and Navy/Marine MARS as an Ancillary
Station for the Navy program.
We are comprised of Active Duty, Retirees, Dependants
and Civil Service. We also have non-DOD associated
members, not many but a few.
There are only a handfull of Military Amateur Recreation
Stations left and of those most are no longer active or
operating on a federal property.
A list of the remaining Military Amateur Rec Stations stations is
maintained at http://www.ah0a.org/FCC/Clubs3.htm
