Tri-City
Amateur
Radio Club
The Tri-City ARC was formed by amateurs in the New London, Norwich and Westerly areas (hence Tri-City) desirous of forming an association of local amateurs with the purpose of furthering better cooperation among amateurs, developing individual skills and efficiency, furthering the interest of amateur radio in the general community and by serving the community in times of emergency. Tri-City is a general interest radio club. We are also an ARRL affiliate club.
Monthly Meetings - Anyone interested in Ham radio is welcomed

Tri-City ARC meetings are held on the second (2nd) Tuesday of every month (except July) at The American Red Cross Southeastern Connecticut Service Center at 200 Boston Post Road, in the Waterford Youth Services building.

Tri-City ARC
encourages all hams to try getting
outdoors this summer for some portable operations.
It's a fun change of pace from the shack.

The Buddipole is a popular commercially produced portable antenna, but it's roots are well documented here at the founder's homebrew site.

The St Louis Vertical is another time tested homebrew portable.

Have a safe summer!
