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.
