Welcome to the Alliance Amateur Radio Clubs online clubhouse. This site is just one of our presences on the web. We are also on Facebook, Twitter, and groups.io.
We’re working hard to get this new site up & running without glitches, broken links, etc. Check back often as we change to serve you better.
We’ve been active in the Alliance area since 1986. There were clubs in the Alliance area before that time. You can read about them on our History page.
You are invited to attend any of our monthly events. We meet for breakfast once a month on the first Saturday. Then on the 2nd Wednesday, we have our club meeting. You can learn more about all our events on our calendar page.
We are a ARRL affiliated Special Service Club. We’ve recently been granted IRS 501(c)(3) status. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by the IRS.
We own & maintain two Amateur Radio repeaters in the Alliance area. You can find access information in the sidebar on the right side of the page. You can find out a lot more about our repeaters on our repeater page.
