Healthy radio clubs are vitally important to the future of Amateur Radio. It is the club that often provides the motivation and support for such fundamental activities as recruiting new hams, sponsoring radio classes and doing volunteer testing. Clubs are often the best organizers and financiers of expensive repeater systems, hamfests and emergency communication programs, as well.

We hold a directed net, that means that there is one person acting as net control, with whom all traffic is directed through. We encourage everyone to advance their radio skills by acting as net control for our weekly ragchew and information net. It's simple, you open the net, make and/or ask for announcements, take check-ins and ask for traffic, and then close the net. It's a great way to get to know more people in the amateur radio community. If you are interested, please email saginawarc@gmail.com so we can send you the preamble and schedule a net where you will be net control.



Public service is a cornerstone of the K5SAG Amateur Radio Club. Qualifications are a desire to serve and an Amateur Radio license.

Amateur Radio operators provide a critical public service for our community such as during parades, marathons, street festivals, community events and other various programs. This public service is easily extended during times of disaster, we are able to provide reliable communications when the normal infrastructure is offline. Licensed by the Federal Communications Commission and trained in the art and science of radio communication and basic electronics theory, we own and maintain our own communications equipment and are prohibited by federal law from receiving payment for our services. The ARRL, our national organization, has built relationships with several served agencies including FEMA, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army and many others.


Community Emergency Response Team

Saginaw CERT is an implementation of FEMA's National CERT Program, administered by the Saginaw Fire Department, which provides a standardized training and implementation framework to community members.

We are an organization of volunteer emergency workers who have received specific training in basic disaster response skills, and who agree to supplement existing emergency responders in the event of a major disaster.

For more information on Saginaw CERT and to learn how to become a member please visit Saginaw Cert online at saginawcert.org


Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service

RACES is a standby radio service provided for in Part 97.407 of the Federal Communications Commission rules and regulations governing amateur radio in the United States.

When so activated, the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service will consist of only those amateur radio operators who have previously registered with State and local governments to provide emergency radio communications for them in times of emergency. Other amateur radio operations might be suspended and operations under the RACES rules might be restricted to certain frequencies within the amateur radio bands.

The Saginaw Haslet Amateur Radio Club supports the community with ham radio services. For more info please visit SHARC online at w5byt.com


Amateur Radio Relay League

ARRL's Mission Statement: To advance the art, science, and enjoyment of Amateur Radio.

ARRL is the national association for Amateur Radio in the US. Founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim as The American Radio Relay League, ARRL is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs. ARRL numbers within its ranks the vast majority of active radio amateurs in the nation and has a proud history of achievement as the standard-bearer in amateur affairs. ARRL’s underpinnings as Amateur Radio’s witness, partner and forum are defined by five pillars: Public Service, Advocacy, Education, Technology, and Membership.

Membership is the lifeblood of our club and we are always looking to recruit new members to our ranks. You don't need to hold an amateur radio license to join in the fun, we can help you get licensed. By becoming a member you are showing your support to our club and in turn to our community.


We need folks to volunteer to do presentations and/or teach classes at our monthly K5SAG meetings. Topics can include anything ham radio related including licensing, antenna building, operating, sharing war stories and pretty much anything else that you are interested in sharing with the group.


K5SAG needs Elmers who are proficient in the art form of amateur radio; who can take mentees under their wing to help mold them into excellent operators who will then hopefully one day become Elmers themselves and pass on the knowledge that they learned to the next generation.


If you have any old computers or computer parts, monitors, radios, transceivers, antennas, cables or coax, or ham shack accessories that you don't want or need please consider donating to K5SAG. We are also looking for fund raising opportunities. Everything goes back into the club and is used to help foster our commitment to servicing our community.


Volunteer your contesting time to K5SAG and use the club callsign. Great for Field Day and other contests. Speak with a club member about scheduling an event.
