The Queen Anne’s Amateur Radio Club (QAARC) is a growing group of amateur radio operators who are passionate about the hobby. Our club was formed in the spring of 2010 because of a need to support amateur activity and communication in the Queen Anne’s County Area.

Are you curious about amateur radio? Whether your interests are in contesting, public service, emergency communications, satellites, QRP, or other topics, we invite you to attend one of our meetings and consider joining the club.

For more information about our organization, or to become a member, please go to the right-hand tool bar under “QAARC Documents and Links” and click “QAARC Documents” in the drop-down box. Our membership application is located in this document folder.

Amateur radio in Queen Anne’s County began years ago with the Kent Island Amateur Radio Club (KIARC). We are fortunate to have founding members of KIARC involved with our organization.

QAARC members are devoted to public service and provide communications support to other local non-profit groups during events such as marathons and bike races.

We’re also dedicated to advancing our communications and electronics skills to benefit the public. Many club members also participate in the Queen Anne’s County RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) group. QAC RACES supports Queen Anne’s County Emergency Management during times of natural disasters and civil emergencies.
