Palomar Amateur Radio Club

Welcome to the Palomar Amateur Radio Club

Founded in 1936, PARC endeavors to serve the amateur radio community in San Diego County through various events and assets. Starting with monthly club meetings, weekly nets, and annual events (such as Field Day), PARC has a place for just about everyone. Our nets include the traditional NTS traffic net, emergency service nets such as Palomar, MARA, SATERN, and the Red Cross, and a number of special interest nets, such as Handi-Hams, Microwave, Off-Road, Ham Help, Hikers, and Facetious Group nets.

With repeaters high upon Palomar Mountain, we are able to serve the local community under almost any condition, and particularly in times of need.

Come by and visit with us on the first Wednesday evening of each month at the Carlsbad Safety Center. See you there, Steve Early, AD6VI, (former) President

You can now check your membership status (and join or renew if you need to) online!

The meeting will be held at 7:30pm on August 6, 2014 (the first Wednesday of the month). Talk-in on 146.730 MHz repeater. Directions to the Safety Center.

Come early and enjoy an "eyeball" QSO with our members.

At the August meeting, there will be a presentation on BroadBand Hamnet, the high speed, self-configuring, self-healing amateur radio data network, where we are a year later and where we are going with it in San Diego.

Conrad Lara KG6JEI will present on BBHN (formerly HSMM), which was introduced to members of the San Diego radio community in early 2013. Topics to include what we have learned in the past year, what progress we have made, where we have deployments, where we are going, and most importantly how you can start experimenting with this new mode of communication.
