News and Events
The Carbon Amateur Radio Club was founded on April 29,1948; 2023 is the Club's 75th anniversary. Our membership consists of amateurs and radio enthusiasts from Carbon and the surrounding counties of Monroe and Schuylkill.
Our members have a wide range of interests, from ragchewing to DXing, contesting to foxhunting, QRP to PSK31, and we are active in ARES/RACES.
Our club station is based in the Carbon County Emergency Communication center.
On August 4, 2023, Karl Verren, KN6CW passed away after a long illness. He was a former president of the club and gave it a shot of increased enthusiasm and purpose. Our condolences go out to his wife, Tatiana in this difficult time.
On September 30, 2023, Rob Roomberg, a long time club member, died suddenly. He was an inveterate tinkerer and was one of the members who kept the Club going through some lean times, including some significant financial assistance. His obituary, which contains many details of his family and life can be found here.
We have replaced our old antenna and put up a new OCF dipole and during its initial operation we made two contacts in Russia outside Moscow. We plan some additional fine tuning of that antenna and are working on the selection of a second antenna. Once the radio room is complete, we will post pictures! Stay tuned...
In October we expect the club to participate in the PA QSO Party! RSVP on the club calendar page.
