March 4th Meeting
COVID-19 is still plaguing the world so we'll be meeting via Zoom again.
Our March program is "Portable Ham Radio: An introduction to operating amateur radio outside" by Joe Domaleski, KI4ASK and Mary Catherine Domaleski, KI4HHI.
The ARC is planning an outing in the park for sometime in March (details to follow) and the Georgia QSO party is coming up the 2nd weekend in April so this program is quite timely. The "outside" is a pretty big place — it includes backyards, forests, beaches, mountain tops, deserts, city plazas, airports and more. Knowing how to operate there is an important skill we all can use.
Please join us on Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 7:00 PM ET via Zoom. To join the meeting, click here.

The Atlanta Radio Club (ARC) was founded in March 1911. It is believed to be the longest continually operating club in Georgia (Georgia Tech was founded earlier). With over 100 members, ARC activities include meetings, operating events, training sessions, membership outings, and community service activities in Metro-Atlanta.
The ARC helps operate the Atlanta Hamfestival and owns, operates or supports 11 repeaters around the metro area. In an average month, the club will hold a regular membership meeting, a tech/training session or operating outing, publish the Atlanta Ham newsletter, have 8 lunch outings and host over 20 nets via club repeaters.
Sister Club - Geelong Amateur Radio Club - VK3ATL
Did you know the Atlanta Radio Club has a sister club?
In 2010, Dallas Jones (VK3DJ) from Drysdale, Victoria in Australia visited the United States to meet some friends he met on the air. "During his travels, he visited the Atlanta Radio Club and from all accounts had a great time with the guys."
