Throughout the year we hold numerous events to get involved with the amateur radio community in the Peace Country. See here for upcoming events and to learn about some of the things we do.
The Peace Country Amateur Radio Club meets every Saturday morning at the Army Navy Air Force Veterans Club in Grande Prairie. If you are new to the area or just passing through, please stop in and have an eyeball QSO and breakfast with some very interesting Amateur Radio operators.
Location: The Ranch at 138 Ave and 100 St
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Field Day is an annual amateur radio exercise that encourages emergency communications preparedness among amateur radio operators. Operations using emergency and alternative power sources are highly encouraged, since electricity and other public infastructures are often among the first to fail during a natural disaster, emergency situation or severe weather event.
To determine the effectiveness of the exercise and of each participant’s operations, there is an integrated contesting component.
The Peace Country Amateur Radio Club typically holds its Field Day every year in June and activities typically include:
- Swap and Shop
- Visiting with Club Members
The PCARC invites all members of the community to come try out the microphone for themselves!
