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
Picnic August 23
The annual picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 23, starting at 9am and lasting through the late afternoon. We've reserved Area 4 at the San Dieguito County Park. There will be a hidden transmitter hunt, and an HF radio setup on 10, 15, and 20 meters.
The club will provide the main course. Please bring
an item from the following list and some drinks. If your last name begins with:
A-K: side dish or casserole
L-R: salad, vegetables, or fruit
Throughout the year, club members earn participation points for signing in at various club activities, including regular monthly meetings, repeater site work parties, operating days, and Field Day. At the picnic, club members redeem those participation points for tickets in the annual prize drawing.
