SANDARC History

SANDARC History

The San Diego County Amateur Radio Council, Inc. (SANDARC) is an organization formed on August 11th, 1958, by a group of San Diego County Amateur Radio Clubs to further the art of the Amateur Radio hobby in San Diego County.

Today, SANDARC assists local clubs with annual events and activities that all member and non-member clubs can attend. 

SANDARC provides Technician, General and Extra Class Amateur Radio license examinations at different locations throughout the County.   SANDARC also sponsors special classes for those who wish to obtain a license with testing immediately following the class.  Check out the License Classes and Testing page for monthly scheduled dates, times and locations for classes and testing.

Every four years, SANDARC sponsors the ARRL Southwestern Division Convention in San Diego. Our next convention will be in 2018.
