"Classic" club meetings:

- These videos are related to club events or activities - such as field day.
Virtual (online) club meetings:
In early 2020, as the pandemic was striking, most public gatherings
stopped so the Utah Amateur Radio Club has begun to present virtual,
online meetings. Past virtual meetings are available for viewing on the club's YouTube channel.
When are these meetings?
- These meetings are held at the normal UARC meeting time: The meeting itself will start at 7:30 PM (Mountain Time) on the second Thursday of every month except July and August.
- As in real life, you can "join" the meeting earlier - In
this case, the live stream will start a bit before the actual meeting, typically between
7:00-7:15 PM (MT)
Where can I watch these meetings?
- You may find these meetings on UARC's YouTube channel - you can click here - or on the link above - to go there.
- To simply watch the meeting you do not need to log in: Anyone can view the live or recorded content.

chat function but you don't need to do anything to just watch it.
