The St. Cloud Amateur Radio Club

The Saint Cloud Amateur Radio Club is a passionate group of Ham Radio Operators committed to our hobby, as well as serving our Community and Beyond via CMEC (Central MN Emergency Communications). We utilize Ham Radio to support Local and National Emergency Communications, Public Service, Education, and more. We are over 100 years old, almost as old as the ARRL.

We are one of the few clubs in the nation that owns and operates its own Clubhouse. Located physically in Waite Park, Minnesota, our clubhouse gives us a great place to pursue our hobby and serve our community.

 

Our Hamfest, The Cabin Fever Reliever is held annually in Saint Cloud, and is one of the largest Hamfests in the State of Minnesota. We work year round planning the event in hopes of providing Hams with the best Hamfest experience possible. You will find us at some of the events around the area where we provide radio communication, help with traffic direction, provide first-aid when necessary, and just enjoy all the people involved.

Our meetings consist of EMCOMM on the first Thursday of the month, Board of Directors on the second Thursday of the month, and The General Membership on the third Thursday of the month. We also get together on Monday Nights from 6 pm to 9 pm, or later, for what we call project night. Project Night is just what it sounds like. We work on different projects that come up, help each other with programming radios, clubhouse maintenance, face-to-face ragchew, and more.

We love visitors at all of our functions, and invite anyone to visit us anytime!
