The Housatonic Amateur Radio Club was formed in 1995 to foster the development of Amateur Radio and advanced Ham Radio operating techniques, both through theory and on the air practice. To provide a suitable environment of camaraderie and support within which members, spouses and their children can obtain a better understanding of amateur radio, gain a proficiency in the art of amateur radio, and to have some fun.

The Housatonic Amateur Radio Club is an ARRL affiliated club. We are active in 10-X International and are a member of SKCC. Details below in the QSL Info section.

We are W5YI and ARRL Certified Instructors and Volunteer Examiners. We teach and test. We are also active in contesting, high altitude Ballooning, Aerospace, STEM and mentoring students. We mentor students from two local Universities and a local High School.
We also include fun in everything we do.


"Direct Currents" is the official newsletter of the Housatonic ARC. It chronicles our club activities including contesting, awards, pictures and stories. Direct Currents is published quarterly.

Our Newsletters have been moved to our Members Only web page. Contact us via email link below if you wish to receive a sample copy of our newsletter.
