Welcome to Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon's (ARCEC) website.
The objectives of the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon, Inc. (ARCEC) are to encourage the furtherance of amateur radio and allied interests; to foster public service by theamateur radio community; the development of acquaintances; to increase our technical skills and knowledge of electronics as well as good operating practices for the increased enjoyment of amateur radio as a hobby. After all what you put into Ham Radio is what you get out of it. Volunteer as much as you can. It is a lot of fun to see all the smiles.
ARCEC is an Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) special services club and we are a member of the San Diego Amateur Radio Council, Inc. (SANDARC). Club members are encouraged to be members of the ARRL as well as the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). Many of our members also participate in the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) and VIP Red Flag Patrol (CAL Fire).
Program for April 9, 2015
ECOMM Message Handling!
The April club meeting presentation will be given by Don Dodson - KI6GZK. Amateur radio operators play an important role during disasters. Even those who shun participating in formal groups like RACES, ARES, Red Cross Communications Team (RCCT) and Southwestern REACT, may find themselves "on the air" with someone needing to communicate in a disaster. Don Dodson (KI6GZK) will share lessons learned in receiving and sending formal message traffic. This will be a customized version of his recent presentation to ARES. All members and visitors are welcome.
