Welcome to the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club

The F.C.A.R.C. is a group of amateur radio operators located in Northwest Ohio. Our goal is to create excitement about the hobby, serve the communities of Fulton County, and have a little fun while we are at it.

Amateur radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide) wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory. An estimated six million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio.

Often unsung, amateur radio operators regularly assist in emergency situations. Hurricane Katrina was no exception. Operators of amateur, or ham, radio were instrumental in helping residents in the hardest hit areas, including saving stranded flood victims in Louisiana and Mississippi.
