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.
