We have a discussion group / listserv on groups.io, as well as a Facebook page and group.

The club also sells antenna launcher kits which are put together by club members right here in Joplin, MO, USA and can be shipped anywhere.  These are great for putting up antennas either in your yard, or at a Field Day site!
