If you are contemplating joining Society Radio Operators (SRO), you probably would like to know something about the organization. What follows is a brief description of the make-up of the club and some of its activities.
SRO is chartered by the State of Illinois as a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to technical improvements and public services within our community. The club is guided by four officers and three directors who are elected by the general membership for one-year terms.
