Info – About

The Forsyth Amateur Radio Club (FARC) was originally incorporated as the Winston-Salem Radio Club on December 31, 1930 and has been in operation ever since. FARC is an ARRL sanctioned Special Service Club focusing on the education and training of hams and the general public in Forsyth and surrounding counties. FARC is a non-profit (IRS 501(c)3) and donations are tax deductible.

FARC has a well equipped and modern ham shack for use by club members. It is recommended that members wanting to use the Elecraft K3 transceivers in the club hamshack download the users and errata manuals for the K3 (links below) and also view the following video about using the K3. Note that the video is large and make a bit of time to download. Members will also have to go over an operational checklist with key FARC members on the FARC ham shack setup. The setup is designed to make using club equipment as easy and as safely as possible.

FARC also maintains three repeaters-one with a wide service area and has significant AuxComm involvement in assisting in emergency and non-emergency events.

FARC is also active in contests. Some world-class contesters are club members!!
