Grant: Connecting, Promoting, Serving, and Educating our Community with Amateur Radio

Date: May 2022
Amount: $23,516

The mission of the Eau Claire Amateur Radio Club (ECARC) is to connect, promote, and educate amateur radio to all, and to provide public service to our community. The goals of ECARC are also closely aligned with the Eau Claire County ARES/RACES.

With these grant funds, the ECARC will purchase new radios for the county emergency operations center, replace an HF antenna at one of the sites, and equip a small trailer with portable communications equipment for emergencies, training, and to promote and educate small groups.
