Upcoming Events (Calendar)

October 2022

Tuesday October 4

19:30 – 20:00
W6BHZ Tuesday Night Club Net for the SLOECC ARES/RACES Training Net
W6BHZ Repeater

The Cal Poly Amateur Radio Club’s shack is a registered Emergency Communications Center, so every week we check in to the county-wide ARES net as a club. At 7:30pm every Tuesday night, tune your radio to the club’s repeater on 146.76 MHz or 442.300 MHz. The net control operator for the local ARES net will check in local club members to the San Luis Obispo Emergency Communications Council. Club members and local area operators are encouraged to check in so that they can test the range of their station. The county-wide net begins at 7:45pm on 146.67 MHz. For more info go to w6bhz.org/nets

CPARC General Meeting

This meeting will be an introduction to the amateur radio hobby in general. Hopefully we will have some good information no matter how experienced you are.


Club meetings regularly have guest speakers from industry and enlightening technical (and non-technical) topics related to Amateur Radio. Meetings usually take place every other Thursday at 6:30p. Meeting room information can be found on the meetings page. Meetings are currently on hold for summer and will resume with the start of the academic year.
