About Us

WELCOME -- TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND COME JOIN US ON THE WEB OR IN A MEETING

The Albemarle Amateur Radio Club (AARC) is an organization dedicated to the advancement of Amateur Radio and to public service. We meet monthly on the grounds of UVA, conduct Ham Radio license preparation classes, administer Volunteer Examination sessions, operate a network of VHF and UHF repeaters, mentor new ham radio operators, practice providing emergency communications, and support many public service events. We have 110 members. Our members are involved in all aspects of Amateur Radio including casual QSOs on all HF, VHF and UHF bands, contesting, DXing, RTTY, CW, SSB, all digital formats, building antennas, experimenting, and service to our local community.

AARC is an ARRL Special Service Club. AARC members are also heavily involved in emergency communications (ARES/RACES of VA) services, and the ARRL Field Day.
