Welcome to the San Diego Amateur Radio Council (SANDARC) Website!!
We are a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization that supports San Diego Amateur Radio Operators, Member Clubs, and the Community.
Our mission is to serve the needs of:
- SANDARC Member Clubs, Delegates and Board Members
- General Public comprised of those interested in becoming a new Ham, Testing and Licensing
- SANDARC Convention Vendors, Speakers, Participants and Volunteers
SANDARC is working hard for the Amateur Radio Community by being the area representative to the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) for San Diego County.
The San Diego County Amateur Radio Council, Inc. (SANDARC) was formed in 1958 by San Diego area Amateur Radio organizations to further the goals of Amateur Radio and its member clubs throughout the region.
SANDARC promotes events and activities throughout the San Diego Amateur Radio Community. Amateur Radio license examinations are administered just about every weekend of the year. You can take an examination for your Technician, General or Extra Class License. From time to time, SANDARC also sponsors classes for those who wish to obtain or upgrade a license, with testing immediately following the class.
Every four years, SANDARC sponsors the ARRL Southwestern Division Convention here in San Diego. Our next convention will be in September 2018. Be sure to check out our online convention information.
Individual amateur radio operators do not join SANDARC. Member clubs appoint delegates to attend SANDARC meetings as their representatives.
