           South Bay Amateur Radio Club-W6SBA was founded 1972

Our monthly meetings on the 3rd Thursday continues to well attended at Torrance Memorial Medical Center, Health Conference Center Room 1. The number of new members joining our group was 10 for the 2018 club year. The number of SK members were 2 and due to economic conditions saw us loose about 4 due to relocation requirements. Membership is mostly senior and aren't as active for reasons we all know to well.

Our major events during the year continues to be Field Day, Jota and Public Service. The ARRL SW Div Confention is scheduled for our area in 2020 which we support in as many areas as possible. In the mean time our Delegate to the LA Area Council of Amateur Radio Club provides information about the Southern CA area including our ARRL SW Div Director Dick-N6AA keeping us up todate.

We continue to support the Palos Verdes Unified School District in their Emergency Communication effort by providing better coverage for the communication exercises. We furthermore wish to increase our support for our local ARES  and DCS groups by activily supporting that effort.

The Ham community is being provided support with VE testing sessions on a bi monthly basis . An public image is also maintained by attending our local Ham swap meet on a monthly basis. The schools are being supported with balloon projects and other scientific projects. Public information is provided by our publicity member on public websites and such
