The association maintains a repeater on Leviathan Peak which serves communications for licensed amateur radio operators, recreational enthusiasts and travelers in Douglas, Alpine, Lyon, Carson City and Churchill counties.

He supported local cycling, equestrian and marathon events and helped spread information during the Tamarack and Caldor fires.

The club meets monthly and offers courses for new amateur radio operators. A popular program on the NV7CV repeater is the Watering Hole, which transmits at 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday at 147.330 MHz.

During the COVID lockdown, local hams were able to hold regular meetings using the repeater. For more information on the association and its events, go to www.cvhams.com or their Facebook page, SIERA.
