Some Aero Amateur Radio Club Activities


In addition to our meetings and nets, the club takes part in many on the air activities through the years.


Our members have joined in Public Service and Emergency Communications Events.
They have participated in various Contests. They have set up communications in remote areas. And the
biggest event is our annual ARRL Field Day Operation in June of each year.

Joe Miko WB3FMT is a paid part time Employee at the MD Science Center at the Observitory and celestial events through the year since November of 2008. He also has the Mount Essex Observitory web page devoted to astronomy. Mt. Essex Observatory is a "tongue-in-cheek" title we have given to our Amateur Astronomy collaberation.  Mt. Essex is wherever we set up our telescopes in Essex Md. which can be between 19 to 100 feet above sea level. Frank Stone AC3P (SK) and Joe began observing many celestial phenomena back in the early 1960's as teenagers and have continued through all these years.

We hope you enjoy our meager efforts at astrophotography. Right now due to lack of the right equipment and light pollution we are not able to image deep sky objects.
