Rodney Amateur Radio Club - NZART Branch 71

Welcome to R.A.R.C

Welcome to the Rodney Amateur Radio Club's website!

Our aim is to support those interested in Amateur Radio within the Rodney district and surrounding areas. We also would like to encourage others to become members and gain their amateur license.

Whilst RARC meets in Wellsford, our members are spread across the Rodney and Kaipara districts - some even further afield such as the Far North and Australia.

RARC started life as the Wellsford Radio Club in the 1950's by its founders, Eycke Zimmerman ZL1AGQ and Alan Dale ZL1ABL, Alan is still a member and attends all our meetings! You can find out more about the clubs history here. The club is still here after sixty years and we will try and make sure it is still going in another sixty years!
