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 and the first president was 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, etc.

I became interested in amateur (ham) radio as a teenager. I was first licensed at fourteen as a Novice class ham with the call sign WN4KTC. But as with many other hams, “life” sort of got in the way. I never pursued it until after retirement. I have been licensed again since 2017. I am most interested in portable operations and active with the “PARKS ON THE AIR” program. I am a volunteer examiner and club mentor in the Parks program helping to get others “radioactive.”
Treasurer – Jim Self – KW4PW
I am a retired Charleston County EMS Paramedic. I have been a Ham since 2016. I have worked with radios my entire career and I have been fascinated with the science of radio communication. Through TARC I am able to coach and provide material support to those coming up behind me as I did in the Boy Scouts as a young person. In America one can find leadership roles in everything aspect of our lives. If you have a question, contact me. I will be glad to help.
Secretary – Mike Edwards – KJ4TAC
I am retired after 21 years in the US Navy and 29 years as a civil servant. I got into ham radio because it was used in my main hobby and I was unable to participate fully. Once I got my license, I became more involved as I was introduced to the various aspects of Ham radio. My current passion is activating parks under POTA (Parks On The Air) organization. That is challenging to take a radio, set up in sometimes remote places, and contact people hundreds to thousands miles away.
