About the Atlanta Radio Club

Our 100+ year History

With over 140 members ARC activities include meetings, operating events, training sessions, membership outings and community service activities in Metro-Atlanta.  

The ARC helps operate the Atlanta Hamfest and owns, operates or supports 11 repeaters around the metro area.
In an average month, the club will hold a regular membership meeting, a tech/training session or operating outing, publish the Atlanta Ham newsletter, have 8 lunch outings and host over 20 nets via club repeaters.
