Crescenta Valley Radio Club is an organization over half a century old. Our members are amateur radio operators who share interests in radio and service to our community. Members help new members starting the hobby as well as helping other members with technical and operational problems of getting on the air. We keep ourselves up to date with the technological changes by inviting expert speakers to our meetings.   CVRC closely supports GEARS (Glendale Emergency Auxiliary Radio). Many members are in both organizations and have provided communications for an emergency at Glendale Memorial Hospital, and with Cruise Night, the Montrose Christmas Parade, and various local themed running events.   We meet once a month on the second Thursday of the month at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital at 7:00PM. Every Sunday we hold our net at 7:50PM for our DMR 445.680Mhz Check-in Net and  8:00PM on  our 146.025 MHZ repeater WB6ZTY for the Whats Going On Net. Both repeaters are located on top of Mount Thom and share use the city’s antenna tower. Their power is backed up by both batteries and an emergency generator.   We have several annual events. In June, we participate in the National Field Day by setting up several stations in Verdugo Park and operating completely “off the grid”. Every August we have a barbecue in Crescenta Valley Park with a Fox Hunt activity where the members try to locate a hidden transmitter. When December comes around we come together for a traditional holiday dinner.
