Club Profile

The CKARC, a group of dedicated Amateur Radio Operators, located in Salina Kansas has been in operation for over 50 years.  

We have been affiliated with the American Radio League  (ARRL) for as long as anyone can remember.

Several of our members are presently active in Emergency Communications, by way of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. (ARES)  We have an active Storm Spotter group who works in conjunction with the Saline County Emergency Preparedness Office. Other members are active in trying to contact as  many foreign Amateur Radio Stations as they can.  Several are involved in contacting station around the world via several of the Amateur Radio satellites that are currently orbiting the earth. There are too many facets to Amateur Radio to describe on this site.  

For more information about amateur radio, go to the ARRL web site: www.arrl.org 

The club has sponsored the ARRL Kansas State convention at the Salina Bi-Centennial Center for the past 6 years. This year it was held on August 21, 2005.  See the State Convention link for information.
