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.

*** ALL hams with operating stations should register at ARES.
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!
