How The Princeton Ham Radio Club Started

In 1977 the "Princeton Amateur Radio Society" began.  It is now "Princeton Ham Radio Club" The club has gone through many changes during this time and is now a growing group.  W4KBL was the callsign of James L. Linton (SK), a respected ham and Elmer to many in this area. We are honored to have his call as Princeton Ham Radio Club's own. Our repeater is located close to Hwy 62 and the Caldwell Co., Lyon Co. line. Our VHF repeater transmits on 145.23 MHz and a tone of 179.9 Hz. We have added a new UHF repeater and is located at the Princeton Vocational School, 444.175 with a PL of 123. All who are licensed are welcomed to use them.
  We have several activities including: volunteer testing , ham classes, service to our community where ever it is needed, programs within the club to further learning and training
