The North Shore
Amateur Radio Club has been in existence since shortly after WWII.
In fact, some of our early members served at Camp X as radio
engineers and operators, building and operating the Hydra radio
transmitter station located on the Oshawa Whitby border.
Our members proudly
and willingly volunteer for community service when called upon and
are a valuable asset for many events in the area that require
radio communication. As well, classes are held each year to
help people obtain their amateur radio license so that they can
join in all the fun activities.
If you are looking
for a club that supports the community, leads out in special radio
events, and has a passion for emergency services then the North
Shore ARC is for you!
- we meet the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm at the
Whitecliffe Terrace Retirement
Residence at 1460
Hwy 2 in Courtice. Upon arrival please go to the reception
desk and get a parking pass to put on the dash of your car. After the meeting
we convene to the
nearby for an informal rag
chew and to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Amateurs.
