Drumlins Amateur Radio Club (DARC) welcomes all Amateur Radio (Ham) Operators. We service 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 are working on setting up a yaesu fusion repeater soon and hope to establish some permanent aprs digipeaters in the area.
We provide testing for Amateur radio licenses, along with our friends at SIARC. Each county provides the testing on an “every other month” basis, so DARC will be June, Aug, Oct, Dec 2015, while SIARC will do testing on the other months. Appointments are not necessary but certainly helpful.
A Sunday Night RACES NET is held most Sundays at 8:35 pm on 146.685 (repeater)
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding testing or other club activities. We hope to see you at a meeting or other activity soon.
