Welcome to the Livermore Amateur Radio Klub (LARK) web site.

The Livermore Amateur Radio Klub (LARK) was incorporated on July 30, 1959,  as a nonprofit association of persons commonly interested in amateur radio. LARK serves the communities of Livermore, Pleasanton, and Dublin California, and the surrounding Tri-Valley area. LARK is also affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).


Full membership in LARK is open to all persons holding a valid Amateur Radio License issued by the FCC or legal aliens with valid Reciprocal Operating Privileges. An Associate membership is available for all other persons wishing to join LARK who do not hold a valid Amateur Radio License.

Membership inquiries should be made to the current membership chairperson as listed in the Contacts and Membership area of this web site.

LARK Amateur Radio Testing Process
At the current time, LARK is meeting virtually using Zoom.  As a consequence our license testing sessions are being conducted on an as-requested basis following the meeting guidance provided by the Alameda County  (ALCO) Health Department
Please read the rules at the following link:
 Testing Rules To Conform With ALCO Health Department

Please contact Ron Kane, AD6KV ad6kv02(AD6KV at to schedule a time and location acceptable to the applicant and the Volunteer Examiners.  This process will be updated as ALCO changes its health orders.

We will transition back to testing sessions following the club meetings when the health situation allows.

For other exams in the local area see: , where you can do a ARRL Exam Session Search.  You can search by state or by ZIP Code and distance you are willing to travel.

Amateur Radio Technician License Training Class
LARK conducts a training class several times each year that will teach you what you need to know to take and pass the "Technician" level licensing test… and you don't need to learn Morse Code for ANY level license.  The next class is not scheduled at this time.
