Become a member of the Foothills Amateur Radio Club!

We encourage all to support the Foothills Amateur Radio Club through membership and donations. Membership is an essential part of the funding and activities of the Foothills Amateur Radio Club.


The Benefits of Membership:

  1. Let's have fun! – Amateur Radio is a hobby and should be fun! It is a social hobby. By participating in club events you will meet other hams that share your passion.
  2. Mentoring – Do you need help learning a new mode or just stuck on a project?
  3. Elmering – Are you ready to upgrade your license or have friends that want to get licensed?
  4. Help with installations – The club is a great source of (expertise) opinions and elbow grease.
  5. Resources for Public Service projects – Are you a member of another service organization that needs people or communications support? FARC can likely help.
  6. Socializing - Remember that Ham radio is what geeks did before computers. Hi-Hi. There are many brilliant people in our community. FARC is a great way to meet and mingle with people that share the same hobby – HAM RADIO! (and computers)
  7. Education – There is a plethora of educational and instructional information available to FARC members both in print and on our website.
  8. Information – The club disseminates information and promotes discussion of radio and technology via on-air, our club website, and our own mailing list.
  9. Legislation – FARC (and the ARRL) are monitoring the actions of your legislators at the local, state, and federal level. We take action and call you to action when needed to protect our bandwidth and our hobby.
  10. Monthly newsletters.
  11. FARC (and the ARRL) are the Voice of Amateur Radio in Wilkes and the surrounding Counties.


Together we can protect the airwaves, serve our community, and support the continuation of the hobby and technological ingenuity.

If you are involved in another Ham organization or SIG (Special Interest Group), please help us promote the benefits of membership and encourage your members to join the Foothills Amateur Radio Club. – Thank You
