Welcome to the Frederick Amateur Radio Club
Frederick Amateur Radio Club, Inc. Post Office Box 1260 Frederick, Maryland 21702-0260
Club meetings are held at 7 PM on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Independent Hose Company station, 310 Baughmans Lane, near Rosemont Avenue in Frederick, Maryland. Please see links below for details. The Frederick Amateur Radio Club (FARC) is a non-profit organization whose members share an active interest in Amateur Radio and in volunteer public service to our community, through Amateur Radio.
Our Club callsign is K3ERM. The FARC traces its roots back to the earlier days of Amateur Radio (1933), when the Frederick Amateur Radio Transmitting Society (FARTS) was formed. Although we are justifiably proud of our FARTS heritage, the Club in later years adopted our present name, which results in a somewhat more polite acronym.
Today, the FARC operates two repeaters in the Frederick area and participates in several public activities. We are affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), and the Foundation for Amateur Radio (FAR). Our Club sponsors a scholarship through the FAR, awarded annually to a deserving young Ham who is pursuing higher educational goals.
We appreciate your interest in our Club, and invite you to browse our web site further to learn more about us, our activities and projects.Â If you are interested in joining the fun and stimulating hobby of Amateur Radio and at the same time helping our community, please clickÂ on the Membership tab at the top of the page.
