Title: Clubs close to Somerset (KY)
Post by: KD8DEY on August 17, 2013, 10:14:07 AM
With my Wifes passing last October, I finally did what I couldnt talk my wife into for the past 14 years.
I moved back to Ky to restart my life.
Left almost everything behind to start a better life for the grandson and myself.
Can't put any antennas up where im at for the moment but I still have the mobile :)
looking for a local club.....

I don't know the Somerset area, but I would suggest you try the KYHam mailing list.  Someone there should be able to help you out.

Welcome back to Kentucky!  I was born in Somerset in 1974, and now live in Richmond.  I don't know of any clubs in Somerset right off the top of my head.  There used to be a club in Monticello that had a repeater down there years ago, they even had a sign along KY 90 advertising the repeater frequency and autopatch.  There is a club here in Richmond called the Wilderness Trail Amateur Radio Club.  Richmond is about a 50-60 minute drive from Somerset, so I don't know if that will help.  Good luck in finding a club, and welcome back!

One other suggestion.  Just try one of the local repeater frequencies down there and ask if anyone knows of any local clubs.  Surely someone can point you in the right direction.

Found a club, Lake cumberland Amateur radio association. Don't know the layout of the town well enough to find their meeting location...
Seems that all the roads off the main drag (27) are all numbered instead of names down here...Makes it a little hard to use google maps...

maybe I can try contacting one of the officials......Thanks
