Officially organized on Friday 05 February 2016, the mission of UVARC is to promote the enjoyment of the amateur radio fellowship and hobby in the Utah Valley area. We also provide Utah Valley ham radio information for those within or visiting from outside our area.

The activities of our group are many and varied, but they generally surround an amateur radio theme. This means while our activities and events are not limited to amateur radio, we focus much of them around radio in some way. That being said, our motto is Family Comes First. Our club call sign is K7UVA. Want to know more? Drop us a line at uvarcinfo at gmail dot com

We’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN 81-3606416), a Utah Corporation, a 509(a)(2) Public Charity, an ARRL-affiliated club, and there is no cost to join UVARC at this time because club expenses are fairly low. But we do ask that you consider a small donation to help out with what costs we do incur.

The current club presidency was elected on 09-06-2018 as follows:

Noji Ratzlaff, KNØJI – President
Chad Buttars, WE7CB – Vice President
Caryn Alarcon, KG7UUR – Secretary / Treasurer
James Brown, W7JHB – Activities / Publicity Coordinator
Trevor Holyoak, AG7GX – Technology Specialist

Meetings held monthly on the first Thursday at 6:30 to 8:00 pm
