The 285 TechConnect Radio Club usually meets on the 1st Saturday of every month, at 10AM. Exceptions are in July due to Field Day and December for the club Holiday Luncheon. We have doughnuts & coffee at 9:30.

Our regular meetings are held at The Bridge Church at Bear Creek. The church has a very nice meeting room, with ample parking, and is conveniently located near Hwy. 285 and Kipling St. The address is 3101 S. Kipling St., in Lakewood.

Occasionally, due to conflicts, we need to move the meeting location. We will publish updates on the main page of this website as early as possible in the event the meeting has moved, and send an announcement to our mailing list. You can also tune in to the Tuesday night Technet for any club announcements.

Presentation materials, when available, will be published in our Documents area.
