After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of our members, supported groups and the public, the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person meetings and public service event participation for the remainder of the year. We will evaluate the following season based on current state and local guidelines for social distancing and gatherings.
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, including government restrictions on public gatherings, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to gather and provide support for other organizations at this time but we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.
We will continue to hold our weekly on-air net meetings. We are also exploring options to provide our members with virtual online monthly meetings so the club may perform it’s business.
We will also continue to monitor the situation and in the event that environmental conditions change, we will revisit our stance on this issue at that time.
With the state and local government stay-at-home orders due to the current COVID-19 pandemic all CARP meetings and activities are suspended until further notice. Please check back here and into the Thursday CARP Net for the latest CARP news and activities.

Here is your opportunity to make a QSO with a skydiver and receive a one-of-a-kind QSL card.
For 9 years a small groups of hams, and a few skydivers who are also hams, have come together to bring you this fun, exciting, and unique way to make a ham radio contact. The skydiver will jump out of a plane from approximately 13,000 feet and deploy his canopy right away to utilize the altitude. Attached to the skydiver is a payload jam packed with amateur radio equipment. Not only will you be able to make 2 meter simplex contacts but you will also be able to track each skydiver via APRS but watch it all unfold from live steaming video.
