The next item in the development of OPARC is to establish our mission statement which helps us guide our organization down the path we wish to follow.
Please review the statement and let us know what you think. Feed back can be given via the website contact form or at the upcoming club meeting.
Orange Park Amateur Radio Club exists to promote the diverse aspects of the amateur radio hobby and service projects throughout Orange Park and surrounding communities. This is achieved through education, encouragement and event opportunities for the individual operator, the organization and the community.
We would like to thank Joe Bassett W1WCN who helped us in the creation of our mission statement.
The event was very successful. We had 3 people that were interested in the club and one that wanted us to give a presentation concerning ham radio at their local organization. It was a beautiful day and we are planning on doing this again. We encourage everyone to show up and enjoy in the fellowship.
The Orange Park Amateur Radio Club, Clay County Amateur Radio Emergency Service and KB4SA Ham Radio Boy Scout Organization will be onsite Sunday 01/27/2013 from 11AM to 5PM for their 1st quarterly public event. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come out and enjoy the market and check out the station at the event.
If you want to help out when you arrive let us know, we always need people to answer questions. We will have a Buckmaster OCF 7 band, 2 meter antenna and HF Digital on site.

January 5th Fox Hunt is at OP High School after the OPARC Breakfast.
We will make antennas which will be 14.00 for the kit. I believe there are 8 kits available right now. Everyone that wants to participate needs to bring a handheld radio. We will have 5 – 6 attenuators so we will need to share.
