About Us

The Westside Amateur Radio Club has been serving the needs of Amateur Radio Operators in the West Los Angeles, California area and vicinity since 1987 and has been acclaimed by the ARRL, local newspapers, and civic officials for its dedication to providing emergency communication services and for its fight against restrictive antenna ordinances. Our Speaker Program, Educational Workshops, and Elmer's Assistance are among the very best.

The  weekly club radio nets are held on Wednesday at 8:00 pm (local) on the K6CCR repeater (Baldwin Hills) at 445.600 (-) MHz PL 131.8, and on Thursday  in conjunction with the LAERA net at 7:30 pm (local) on 449.700 (-) MHz PL 131.8 on the W6NVY repeater (Mt. Wilson).

Club meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm. We meet at the Santa Monica Masonic Lodge located on the 2nd floor at 926 Santa Monica Blvd., in Santa Monica, between 9th and 10th streets.. Enter from the street entrance, go up the stairs, turn left, and go down the hall to the Riviera Room. Some parking is usually available in the parking lot behind the building.

You are invited to join us at our monthly club breakfast held at 8:00-9:30 AM the first Saturday of the month at Fromin’s Deli, Santa Monica, 1832 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica 90403
