Hams Against Hunger
We are accepting food donations to benefit the local food shelves. You can bring any non-perishable food items to our meetings and events, or give them to any board member. Thank you for helping out the less fortunate in our community - your donations are sincerely appreciated!
Several time a year the ACRC helps out at events like parades, festivals, fun runs, fire works and more. These events tend to be fun and several are great family events. There is nothing like having a guaranteed front row seat at a fireworks event or parade. Check out the club calendar for more information.
You do not need to be a member to attend and family members of all ages are welcome. Each meeting will have a different topic for the month. There are ten General Meetings from January through June and again from September through December. We take the summer months off while everyone tend to be really busy having fun in the warm weather. General Meetings are normally held on the first Friday of the month at the Blaine Base Ball Complex and start at 7:00 p.m. To view the minutes from these meetings, click on the Club Documents link.
We sponsor a two-meter repeater at 146.670 MHz (114.8 PL tone). For more details on the club's repeater, please check out the Repeater Status page.
