The Pottstown Area Amateur Radio Club (PAARC) is an ARRL affiliated, general interest amateur radio club that sponsors many types of activities. Our membership represents nearly all facets of the amateur radio hobby and related technologies. PAARC operates 4 FM repeaters, APRS Digi, and a IRLP Node.


     Anyone is welcome, and encouraged to attend our meetings as you do NOT need to be a radio amateur to participate. Also, we will not bore you with meeting minutes or other business drudgery as these meetings are for you! The primary purpose of these meetings is to get together with our fellow amateurs, friends and families in order to enjoy conversation and snacks. There are usually monthly presentations covering various topics including everything from Amateur radio to star gazing and automated pie making machinery.
