Island County Amateur Radio Club




Boasting a membership of over 70 federally licensed amateur radio operators throughout the county, the Island County Amateur Radio Club is a non-profit organization that strives to provide emergency and special event communications support to the community, promote learning and expertise in the art of electronics and radio technology and foster amateur radio as an enjoyable hobby for young and old.


The club, which is associated with the non-profit American Radio Relay League, seeks to provide community support to enhance the quality of life within Island County and to assist during times of man-made or natural disaster. The club utilizes a linking network of very high frequency (VHF) repeaters to provide adequate radio communications coverage throughout Whidbey Island.


Club members in 2014 provided at no charge over 1,030 hours of communications support for 12 community events such as training exercises, races, and parades; participated in 153 on-air training nets totaling over 400 hours; and provided three classroom training programs totaling 275 hours.


The club meets monthly in the Island County Commissioners’ hearing room in Coupeville. More information about the Island County Amateur Radio Club is available on its website.
