About the Atlanta Radio Club

Our 100+ year History

The Atlanta Radio Club (ARC) was founded in March 1911.  It is believed to be the longest continually operating club in Georgia (GA Tech was founded earlier).
With over 140 members ARC activities include meetings, operating events, training sessions, membership outings and community service activities in Metro-Atlanta.  

The ARC helps operate the Atlanta Hamfest and owns, operates or supports 11 repeaters around the metro area.
In an average month, the club will hold a regular membership meeting, a tech/training session or operating outing, publish the Atlanta Ham newsletter, have 8 lunch outings and host over 20 nets via club repeaters.

The Atlanta Radio Club is classified as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS. All contributions are tax-deductible.

The Atlanta Hamfest

June 7, 2014 

The Atlanta Radio Club is best known for its sponsorship of the annual Atlanta HamFest, a yearly event which hosts many vendors, exhibitors, and flea marketers of amateur radio equipment and other electronic equipment, including computers.

In 2013 the Kennehoochee ARC joined forces to produce one combined spring hamfest in Metro-Atlanta.

As plans pick up for 2014 you can find more information on our hamfest website.
