Drumlins Amateur Radio Club (DARC) welcomes all Amateur Radio (Ham) Operators. We serve the Wayne County, New York area and we are the ARES and RACES organization for the area. We work in close conjunction with the Wayne County Emergency Management Office in Lyons, NY and have a radio shack located in the EMO building in Lyons. Our group provides back-up communications for Wayne County EMO and actively participate in drills with the EMO. We work closely with other amateur radio groups in our area, particularly Squaw Island Amateur Radio Club (SIARC) out of Ontario County. Anyone interested in Ham radio activities is welcome to attend our meetings, and hopefully join the club. Drumlins was formed in 1975 and proudly sponsors one of the areas best Hamfest’s, usually in April each year. We have set up a. Yaesu Fusion Repeater on 444.750 (PL 110.9) and upgraded the controller on 146.685 and put up a new antenna and new controller on 146.745 in 2015.
We provide FREE testing for Amateur radio licenses, along with our friends at SIARC. Each county provides the testing on an “every other month” basis. For details click testing for the current contacts and testing schedule. Appointments are not necessary but certainly helpful.
A Sunday Night RACES NET is held most Sundays at 8:35 pm on 146.685 (repeater). Check the Calendar/
You can email email@example.com with any questions regarding testing or other club activities. We hope to see you at a meeting or other activity soon.
