Welcome to the Eau Claire Amateur Radio Club inc.
located in Eau Claire, Wisconsin USA.
The Eau Claire Amateur Radio Club (ECARC) was founded in 1947 and incorporated in 1960. The club has been the home for Amateur Radio in the Chippewa Valley for over 65 years.
We are affiliated with the American Radio Relay League and have earned the designation as a Mentor and Special Service Club.
The club is comprised of members from various backgrounds. Though we all have individual differences we share a common interest in the hobby of Amateur Radio with its many facets. Some club members enjoy Contesting or Chasing DX. Others enjoy rag chewing on the clubs repeaters on 146.910 or 147.240 MHz (Tone 110.9 hz).
Contesting is the competitive side of amateur radio operating. In a Contest, an amateur radio station, which maybe operated by an individual or a team of operators, seek to contact as many other amateur stations as possible in a given time period and exchange information.
In 1989, the ECARC formed an ARRL Volunteer Examination team to administer FCC amateur radio examinations. The exams are administered a minimum of four times a year. The next examination session is scheduled for July 13, 2013 9:00 AM in Eau Claire, WI..
If you are thinking about becoming a HAM operator, just received your license, or are a veteran operator. The "ECARC is for you".
Club meetings are held at Grace Lutheran Church, 202 W Grand Ave, on the Third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM, 3rd Floor Room 310, use 2nd Ave entrance.
