Amateur Radio Operators Club
Amateur Repeater Club
Les Voyageurs Amateur Radio Operators Club was formed in the 1960's as a group of Amateur Radio Operators that traveled around the area and set up Amateur Radio Stations for contests and to operate expeditions.
In the late 60's and early 70's it's members were among the first to put up an Amateur Repeater in Sellersville, PA.
The repeater operated on 146.280 MHz input and 146.760 MHz output with the callsign WA3IPP/R.

In 1970 Les Voyageurs (WA3IPP) joined with The Main Line VHF Society (WA3BKO) to form the Philadelphia Area Repeater Association (PARA) who now run twelve (12) repeaters on seven (7) bands. These include voice, digital, and ATV repeaters.
After almost three decades of inactivity some of the original members of Les Voyageurs decided to re-activate Les Voyageurs to act as a user support group for the 146.880 MHz, WA3IPP, PARA Northwest Quadrant Repeater.
They decided to change the name slightly to more reflect their current purpose of existance. The new name is the Les Voyageurs Amateur Repeater Club or LVARC.
The Club was able to request and be issued the old LVAOC callsign WA3IPP.
If you would like to help support Les Voyageurs contact any of the club officers on the 146.880 MHz WA3IPP repeater.
