About Us

The Peoria-Area Amateur Radio Club traces it roots back to the Peoria Amateur Radio Club, which was first established in 1919. The Peoria Amateur Radio Club, one of our predecessors, was one of the first organized amateur radio clubs in the United States. The present club, the Peoria-Area Amateur Radio Club, has evolved from the joining of two clubs in the early 1980′s.   At that time, the 85 repeater club merged with the Peoria Amateur Radio Club.   Both clubs benefited from the merger.   The 85 repeater users, gained a larger membership base and financial support for the repeater, while the members of the Peoria Amateur Repeater Club gained a repeater.  Today PAARC is affiliated with the Central Illinois Chapter of the American Red Cross.  A special thanks to this organization for assisting our club.  The American Red Cross provides us with meeting space as well as a location for a club station.  You can contact PAARC via email at w9uvi@arrl.net
