about us

The Russell County Amateur Radio Club, Inc. (RCARC, Inc.) was formed in March, 1999. Our primary purpose is to serve as a backup communications auxiliary to the Russell County Office of Emergency Management. We also promote amateur radio to the public in the form of our annual Field Day celebrations and other special events that we hold from time to time. Perhaps our most fulfilling role however, is to provide new amateurs with experienced advice and support to further the wonderful activity known as ham radio.

Our members have a diverse interest base including mobile HF, VHF, digital modes, radio direction finding, and emergency communications. We can effectively communicate with the next town, the next county, the next state, or anywhere in the world. We have acquired over the past several years and impressive equipment inventory with which to accomplish our objectives--all of which is centrally located in Lebanon for ease of access should the need arise. The RCARC, Inc. is able to provide over 10,000 watts of generator capability and support extended emergency communications needs with military-grade antenna support equipment, a wide variety of commercial and custom-built antennas, our own logistical supplies, and our own manpower. The goal of the RCARC, Inc. is to become a self-contained, go anywhere, do anything organization with no need for outside assistance. Our continuing agenda is one of public education, promotion of the radio art, and preparation for disasters we sincerely hope never come.

The RCARC, Inc. is a very active club. We are currently involved in several activities such as amateur radio demonstrations and training.
