Ottawa Amateur Radio Club

The Ottawa Amateur Radio Club Inc. (OARC) is an association of radio amateurs devoted to the promotion of interest in amateur radio communications in Canada’s National Capital Region and to the advancement and achievement of club members.

The club’s call sign is VE3RC and it’s used at many events including the annual field day each June.

OARC owns and manages three repeaters located at a high elevation in the Gatineau hills just north of Ottawa as well as two voters. The newest is a DMR repeater that was deployed in early 2022.

Club meetings are held the second Wednesday monthly. Since 2020, they have been virtual only. There is a plan to begin “hybrid” meetings (ie onsite and virtual) beginning September 14, 2022. See the OARC website for updates.

The OARC is affiliated with Radio Amateurs of Canada, Canada’s national association of amateur radio operators, and participates in their Affiliated Club program.

The OARC welcomes new members from across Canada! Now that the world is accustomed to “virtual meetings” members from anywhere can join and participate in monthly meetings. Anyone is welcome to visit a monthly meeting by contacting the OARC meeting convener for an invitation.
