Club Profile

The CKARC, a group of dedicated Amateur Radio Operators, located in Salina Kansas has been in operation for over 72 years.  

We have been affiliated with the American Radio League  (ARRL) since June 3, 1949.

Several of our members have been active in Emergency Communications, by way of the ARRL's Amateur Radio Emergency Service. (ARES)  We have had an active Storm Spotter group that worked in conjunction with the Saline County Emergency Management Office.  Other members are active in trying to contact as  many foreign Amateur Radio Stations as they can.  Several are involved in contacting station around the world via several of the Amateur Radio satellites that are currently orbiting the earth. There are too many facets to Amateur Radio to describe on this site.
