ACARA-VT is an ARRL affiliated club and our members have a wide variety of interests, although contesting and DXing have the lion's share.

If you are new to ham radio, we have some info and links that will help you get started. Our members, also, are always happy to help new-comers get into the swing of things, so don’t hestitate to ask questions or seek help.

You’ll find direct newsfeeds from ARRL and ARES on the news page, as well as our own, and other local, news items. Other pages have info related to specific pursuits within the world of ham radio, member info, and more. Please explore and let us have your feedback.



The ACARA website needs your help—a website is only as good as the information it contains. If you are an ACARA member, please feel free to send pictures of your hamshack, your latest project; information about your activities that you’d like to share; requests for used equipment you’re looking for, info on something you want to sell; or anything you think might interest others. Your comments and suggestions about the site are also welcome. If you know of an event from another club, send it along to add to the Calendar! Send your submissions to: Robin/ N1WWW .
