About us...

Fort McMurray Amateur Radio Club is a Non-Profit Community Service Club located in Fort McMurray, Alberta that promotes the Art and Science of Amateur Radio. The club, operates three voice repeaters, two digipeaters, and one iGate in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Our mission is to spread the knowledge of Amateur Radio to anyone who wants to learn in Fort McMurray and outlying areas. The club provides event communications as well it maintains a strategic partnership with Fort McMurray Search and Rescue to provide communication support for deployments.

Members meet every Saturday at 8:30/9:00 a.m. in the parking lot located at 101 Spuce Street. Some of the members grab breakfast at the Thickwood A & W drive through before coming over. Members will converse with one another on radios using the VE6TBC repeater which is on 146.940 MHz with a negative offset.

Some of the information you can find on this website include a video "What is Amateur Radio", links to the Radio Amateurs of Canada and the American Radio Relay League, National Calling Frequencies, various Nets, Local Repeater information, and Current Space Weather Forecast which effects radio propagation.
