If you are looking to network or socialize with like-minded people, learn more about ham radio and so on, visiting and perhaps even joining one of your local ham radio clubs is a good way to go about the above. I have compiled a list of the local clubs for the greater San Francisco Bay Area for your convenience.

If you find that I have missed something please let me know so I can include it.

Please double-check meeting times and locations as times and dates can vary especially in December when many clubs have Christmas parties ALSO special summer meetings such as BBQ Picnics, Ice Cream Socials and so on. Also, locations are subject to change. Last checked & updated: May 1st, 2023

I have also put together a video for you listing some very compelling reasons why you should join a ham radio club.
