Three years after the end of WWII, in 1948, a group of eager folks who appreciated the value and joy of radio communication gathered to form an organization they called the Parma Radio Club. Many of these members, undoubtedly, brought their experience and knowledge of radio and electronics learned while serving their country. The following year, on May 9th this fledgling group joined hundreds fellow radio amateurs across the country when they affiliated with the American Radio Relay League. According to the ARRL, there are now more hams in the U.S. than ever before.
The PRC has always taken great pride in its ongoing effort to provide a friendly atmosphere for experienced hams and beginners. We have a sincere interest in amateur radio and endeavor to provide enriching programs to help members improve their technical knowledge and operating skills. In addition, members enjoy weekly on air nets, annual Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day and other operating events, as well as two fun summer picnics. You’ll find the PRC a terrific club to make life time friends.
We hope you’ll visit with us at our next meeting. You do not need to be a licensed radio amateur or a member to attend our meetings and events. See our Meeting page for more information.
