The Orange County Amateur Radio Club, Inc. is a non-profit educational and service organization chartered under the laws of New York State. OCARC is affiliated with the American Radio Relay League, a national association of Amateur Radio clubs.

Our Members’ interests range from message handling to contesting, experimentation to public service… and even just plain chatting on the air! We share the love of Amateur Radio and fellowship.

OCARC was established to be an all-volunteer membership club focused primarily on educational and public service aspects of the Amateur Radio Service. Through lectures, formal Amateur Radio classes, and American Radio Relay League-coordinated FCC exam sessions, ham radio is taught to both hams wishing to advance to higher levels of FCC license class and non-hams wishing to obtain an entry level license.

Any and all donations no matter the amount are gratefully appreciated.
