Welcome to the Treasure Valley Radio Association, an ARRL affiliated amateur radio club serving ham radio operators in the
Southwestern Idaho and Southeastern Oregon area. TVRA's main goals is to promote quality amateur radio communications, to
provide public service and educational training in amateur radio. We wish to improve good will within our local areas, and
enjoy ourselves in the process. Our Volunteer Examiners provide ham license testing on a monthly basis. Contact us if you
are interested in amateur radio or desire further information about this amazing hobby.
Community Service Activities
The TVRA radio club has been very supportive of community activities in several different ways. We have provided communications support for several
parades in our local area. We have sponsored a safety coffee break over Thanksgiving weekend for many years. This event is held at the
I-84 rest stop on the Idaho/Oregon border. We greet road weary travelers with a cup of coffee, cookies, or other refreshments with
a little home town hospitality. In the past we have assisted community sponcered events by providing communications for go cart races, local floods and disasters.
When needed we are available and willing to help.
Many of our TVRA members enjoy and support the social activities that are sponsored by our club officers. A monthly breakfast is held on the first Saturday
of each month. Our monthly club meeting is held in the meeting room at a local restaurant. Many members enjoy a good meal before the start of the meeting. Summer fun activities
include picnics with fox hunts, club contest operations and a field day operations at various location in the Southeastern Oregon and Southwestern Idaho
areas. We hold an annual Christmas party with fun games and a gift exchange. Anyone is welcome to attend any of these activities and have a chance to learn about Amateur Radio.
