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

Each year PARC hosts an annual picnic for its members and every year it is great fun. Throughout the year, club members earn participation points for signing in at various club activities like the regular monthly meetings, repeater mountain work parties, operating days, and Field Day. This is the time for club members to redeem those participation points for tickets in the annual picnic prize drawing. A maximum of 20 tickets for each club member is allowed. Club members even get a point for attending the picnic. Multiple prizes will be awarded in various denominations.
The club will provide the main course. Members and their guests are asked to bring an item from the following list and some drinks. Last names beginning with: A-K: side dish or casserole, L-R: salad, vegetables, or fruit, S-Z: dessert.
There is lots of fun to be had at the picnic. Plans are in the works for games, T-hunting, radios, exercises, puzzles, and more.
Come and share some good food and great stories, try and find the hidden transmitter, and most importantly, come out and have a great time with other Hams from our club.
We look forward to seeing you there! Food! Fun! Good company!
