Excellent Value

KWARC has presented top class speakers who have brought informative sessions from all areas of our hobby. Your Program Director will continue to strive at maintaining the same high calibre line-ups during the year. 

KWARC delivers a quality publication on-time each month. This challenge has been met and will continue to be a priority. 


  • KWARC continues to invest in improvements our VHF/UHF antenna facilities on the CKCO tower at Baden , and at the Mannheim location.  This work has improved the coverage of VE3KSR, and the other repeaters.  Your support is appreciated as it helps maintain the financial reserves for this type of work. 

  • KWARC provides its members 5 voice repeaters.

  • KWARC also operates a node on the Internet Repeater Linking Project (IRLP) that connects VE3RBM to other repeaters around the world.  This service is only available to KWARC members.


KWARC now has a full time link to the world-wide IRLP (Internet Radio Linking Project).  This service is available via our VE3RBM UHF repeater on 444.875 with PL of 131.8.  IRLP allows members to interconnect VE3RBM with over 150 repeaters around the world. More information at www.kwarc.org/irlp/ 

Each January KWARC hosts a beginners class providing a teaching environment to anyone wishing to become a Radio Amateur. Our pass rate has averaged over 80%. demonstrating the calibre of instruction from our dedicated instructors. 

KWARC has participated in the annual Field Day competition and exercise. Sponsored by the American Radio Relay league, this contest tests the emergency preparedness of our club as we set up and operate for 24 hours under emergency conditions. 

On the first day of KWARCs 75th year (Sept 96) , we entered Cyberspace with the inauguration of the KWARC web site. This addition to KWARC web pages  has been visited over 1 million times by amateurs and interested parties around the world. We would be amiss if we did not thank Don Sinclair VE3ICD for his generosity and support at hosting the club's web site through his company, K-W Information Gateway Services

Now that you have been reminded of the value you receive for your annual membership, how about completing our on-line membership form.
