The Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club, Inc. was formed to encourage and foster mutual interest in Amateur Radio Communications.
- April 18th-Special Computer Net
The April 18th LIMARC Computer Net will have a special guest; Rich W2BZ
who will talk to us about hacker techniques. Rich kept on hearing that
hackers were interrupting communications, stealing money, data, and
identities as well as spreading viruses and other malware. He asked
himself “How do they do that?” Rich did the research to answer that
question and will share the knowledge with us on the 18th. Hopefully
this will satisfy our curiosity as well as give us some insight into how
to protect ourselves from these techniques.
- Field Day Availability

- ARISS Contact and Freeport Public Schools 3/27/18
Today Freeport High School hosted an ARISS program including a very nice
exchange between students and the ISS. It was livestreamed for about 2
hours and 27 minutes. The program can be re-played at
livestream.com/fps. The last hour is of most interest.
Our vice president, Craig Ross, spoke representing amateur radio and LIMARC.
Of the few ARISS contacts that I have seen, I think this was the best
prepared and executed.
