Welcome to the Ventura County Amateur Radio Club

We are an active group of ham radio operators, mostly living in Ventura County, that enjoys getting on the air and getting together, to operate and discuss ham radio. Whether you are a seasoned veteran looking to hang around with other hams, or you are new and want to know more about what ham radio is about, this club can help. Please click on Club Info – About Us to know more. For a list of upcoming events, click on the Calendar tab to see what activities we have planned for the year. If you are looking to get or upgrade your license, the Licensing tab will show you the test dates we have available for 2024. Need help with your antenna, programming your rig, or how to get started in the hobby? Use the Help tab to send us your question.

We are here for you.
