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
Palomar Amateur Radio Club will be demonstrating and educating the public about amateur radio at the Oceanside Harbor Days event this weekend, September 27 and 28 at Oceanside Harbor. Over 40,000 visitors are expected.
On October 5, Oceanside Fire Day will have more outreach to educate the public. This will be downtown Oceanside by Fire Station 1.
Both these opportunities have been brought forward by CERT. Palomar ARC has established a relationship with CERT to complement each other at these educational events, including Operating Days.
