Home of the Kittitas County Amateur Radio Club (KCARC)
Welcome to the home of the Kittitas County Amateur Radio Club (KCARC)!

The Kittitas County Amateur Radio Club (KCARC) is now an ARRL Affiliated Club.

KCARC changed its name at the December 2, 2023 meeting from the Kittitas County Amateur Communication Service (KCARCS). We are keeping old content from the KCARCS days, as it is part of our club history. We are also updating the website, and adding new sections and more information over the coming months, so please check back often.

If you are interested in joining the club, or just visiting with us to see what's going on, in-person meetings are generally the first Saturday of the month at 8am, unless there is a holiday or special event. Meetings are generally held at The Palace Cafe in Ellensburg, but we also try to hold them in the Upper Kittitas County.

Meeting dates and times are posted on the website, and are sent by email to club members.
