Welcome to the website of the Austin Amateur Radio Club, an active affiliate club of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) now in our 99th year! Our club meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Applied Research Lab at 10000 Burnet Road. (But check here to see if a holiday shifts the schedule.)
Club meetings are open to the public!
Members are active in a number of specialized areas including Field Day, Contesting, Digital Modes, EMCOMM and ATV. Members can usually be found monitoring the 146.940 repeater (107.2). Come Join Us!
Note: This is a public website. No login is required to view the public content on this site. However, in the near future (sorry, don't have a specific date yet), AARC members will have access to special, Members Only information and forums upon login. Also, each of the top menu items are separate pages, in addition to the links below them. Some logins have been setup to assist with paying dues by credit card. If you haven't received a login yet, don't panic! We're in the process of finding a new treasurer and will get things sorted out as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience.
It has been brought to our attention that there is an online solicitation seeking donations to support costs for a purportedly ill youngster. The solicitation is claiming that the youngster is the critically ill child of an ARRL member and requires urgent surgery. ARRL has confirmed that this is a scam and that ARRL will never send an unsigned email of this nature to members. If you see this solicitation, your best course of action is to ignore it. If it comes in an email, do not forward it. Just delete it.
