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. 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.
The Trident Amateur Radio Club is an official ARRL Affiliated Club. Click here to learn about the ARRL -> arrl.org

I became interested in amateur (ham) radio as a teenager while getting my pilots license in high school. I didn’t pursue getting my license as it wasn’t required for my pilot license and didn’t look much more into it. In 2019 I was volunteering as a motor marshall for LoVelo on my motorcycle with my father and a few friends. We were not able to stay in contact due to the area the ride was in but the support vehicles were mostly operated by hams and maintained contact across the city. I asked one of the drivers what radios they were using and he reintroduced me to ham radio. Since then I have been introduced to Parks on The Air. I enjoy portable operations and emergency communications planning. I am a volunteer examiner for the ARRL, W4VEC, W5YI and GLAARG. I am also a session manager for GLAARG specializing in online ham radio testing. I also volunteer as an area manager for Parks on The Air uploading logs from activators with a 4 in their call.

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.
