Doors open at 7:00 pm for pre-meeting socialization

As always, our December meeting is our Holiday Social! There is no set program/presentation, rather we will have Mark KF6WTN along with others providing various stations including radio testing and programming, antenna testing and tuning, a repeater display, and holiday treats!
Everyone is invited to bring their favorite holiday dish or sweet to share. The club will provide the plates, napkins, cups, and beverages.
The December meeting is IN PERSON only, this format doesn’t lend itself well to Zoom, unfortunately.
Join us in-person at

PARC was founded in February of 1936 and strives to provide the best services available to the San Diego HAM community. PARC hosts monthly membership meetings at the Harding Community Center (3096 Harding St, Carlsbad, CA 92008)., details about the next meeting can be found on the Events page. We also host several annual events, like Field Day, Operating Day, and a picnic. Our repeaters serve not only as a means of communication for all HAMs in the area, but also host specific nets to allow specific topic discussions or practice for emergency preparedness. Some of our nets include the National Traffic Service (NTS), MARA, SATERN, and Red Cross. Special interest nets include Microwave, Ham Help, Handi-Hams, and the new C4FM Help group.

Radios for Scouts is a program that the club sponsors, through generous contributions by our members, to provide a brand new pre-programmed Baofeng radio to local Boy Scouts who pass their Technician class exam and obtain their first callsign! Please contact the board for information on sponsoring this project
Our repeaters are located near the top of Palomar Mountain, at about 5600ft above sea level, and operate on a battery bank that is fed by commercial power. We proudly maintain independent power for several weeks in the event of an extended grid outage, and indefinitely if we make a trip with a generator and fuel.
Thank you for stopping by, feel free to give a shout out on our repeaters, or join us for our monthly meeting!
Membership is not a requirement for using the repeaters or attending the meeting. However, we would encourage you to join the club and experience all the benefits of membership.
