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

At the August meeting, Drew, KB9FKO, will give an overview of the Summits on the Air program which combines mountaintopping and amateur radio. He'll bring a backpack with his portable gear setup for show and tell. Additionally, some of the web resources for the program will be discussed.
