About the DHRA

Draper Ham Radio Association (DHRA) — preparing to serve with emergency communications in and around the City of Draper, Utah.

We hold a weekly directed public safety net every Thursday night, 8:30pm MT.

  • Primary Frequency:  447.100- PL tone 100 Hz
  • Backup Frequency:  447.100 Simplex

Excepting holidays and the fourth Thursday of the month when we have our monthly face-to-face meeting at City Hall at 7:00pm in the GIS conference room on the second floor (unless otherwise announced over the net/email).

Our goal is to practice using our equipment and improving our radio skills in the event of a real emergency to serve the City of Draper’s ten emergency preparedness districts.

Watch this site for the latest info on meetings, nets and the repeater.


The next in-person meeting of the Draper Ham Radio Association will be Thursday, March 23, 2023 at 7pm at Draper City Hall, 1020 Pioneer Road. After a brief update on the club’s involvement in the Great Utah Shakeout, Darryl Hazelgren, K7UT, will do a presentation on two upcoming operating events: The 7th-area QSO Party, the first weekend in May, also known as 7QP, and ARRL Field Day, the fourth weekend in June.
