 Amateur Radio Club of Augusta

 

The Amateur Radio Club of Augusta serves all amateur radio operators, and those interested in radio communication, in Augusta-Richmond County, and the CSRA, as a resource for education, information, and operating opportunities. We also volunteer our services as radio communicators to the community during public events, emergency situations, and instances of severe weather. The Amateur Radio Club of Augusta is recognized by the ARRL as a Special Service Club.

Each year, the club hosts a number of events which promote our hobby to the public and provide area amateur radio operators with opportunities to get on the air, acquire new skills, and learn new aspects of the hobby. We host the annual Augusta Hamfest, which is quite popular with regional amateurs. We also host an operating event for the annual ARRL Field Day, typically making several hundred contacts. The club also sponsors events each year to participate in several QSO parties, hosts two swap meets in addition to the hamfest, and has a regular meeting every month.

Our meetings are open to all members of the public, whether they are licensed operators or not. While we must conduct club business at each meeting, we also provide at least one presentation which may cover a variety of topics related to amateur radio, general electronics, computers, emergency services, or personal development.

The Amateur Radio Club of Augusta is organized as a nonprofit corporation in the State of Georgia (since 1957) and holds a 501(c)(3) public charity status with the United States IRS. Donations to the Amateur Radio Club of Augusta are tax-deductible and we are happy to provide documentation of your donation upon request.
