About Us

The Powhatan Area Radio Club (PARC) is a community of amateur radio operators established in 2017. The club offers both fun and educational opportunities for its members, with a commitment to helping both seasoned and new operators enjoy Amateur Radio. The "Ham-Breakfast" is a monthly gathering held at the County Seat restaurant at 8:00 AM on the third Saturday of every month, except in December. We would love to see you there!

What We Do

PARC is affiliated with the ARRL and our members actively promote and support amateur radio in Powhatan County. Members enjoy activities and friendships based on common interests in communicating via radio, both locally and around the world. We also have a unique partnership with Powhatan Emergency Management Services to support and operate the N4POW repeaters.  PARC members volunteer to provide communication support for community events such as the Ukrops 10K. Each year PARC participates in the ARRL Field Day event, Winter Field Day and Virginia QSO Party.  We also support the Powhatan Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES). for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes.
