About the Humboldt Amateur Radio Club

Serving all of Humboldt County California and seated in Eureka, the Humboldt amateur Radio Club is the original ham club in our area, joining the ARRL in 1951. Our club is a traditional, active, and progressive collection of radio amateurs young and old, new, and seasoned, who practice the art and science of Amateur Radio. At HARC, we welcome all who are interested in amateur radio, including those who are currently licensed and those who are not yet licensed.

HARC is a traditional Amateur Radio club* with monthly meetings, nets, license classes and VC exams, public service activities, programs, and more. The number of members over the age of 30 exceeds the number of members under the age of 30. The club is strong on Elmering (mentorship).

*(Although traditional, we are up to date on the latest in ham radio, including digital modes, software defined radios, and satellite work. If you would like to know more, join us.
