Welcome to the Trident Amateur Radio Club!
The Trident Amateur Radio Club is dedicated to helping newly licensed and experienced amateurs get active and participate in ham related activities. The club was formed in April of 1973 by Tom Lufkin – W4DAX. Since then the club’s mission is to get new and old hams on the air and stay radio active by having operating events like Summer and Winter Field Day, Special Event Stations, Parks On The Air (POTA) events, Operating Days, Picnics, etc.
The Trident Amateur Radio Club meets monthly on the third Monday of the month. Hams and non-hams are welcome to attend. We invite you to participate as a guest and then join the club if you would like to get involved. There are a lot of resources within the club that can help any ham or someone just getting started in the hobby to get on the air! We hope you’ll join us as you get involved in this fascinating hobby.
