About the Atlanta Radio Club

Our 100+ year History

The Atlanta Radio Club (ARC) was founded in March 1911.  It is believed to be the longest continually operating club in Georgia (GA Tech was founded earlier).
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.

The Atlanta Radio Club is classified as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS. All contributions are tax-deductible.
