Frank, K1FMK enjoying Field Day with the club in the cool pines!

Our group continues to follow it’s original mission, as enacted by the general membership in it’s original April 2010 charter, to operate strictly as an activities group.  We focus on camping, field trips, fishing, hiking, and teaching.  We do not have, nor have plans for, a club repeater or hamfest, nor are we hardcore contesters. 

The Mesa ARC is an activities club, specializing in outdoor activities, operating from the field, working together to Elmer each other. Our activities meetings are one to two hours long. In these meetings, we strive to not only give a class on how to do something, but also go outside immediately after and do it. Sometimes the activity, such as running HF for a night, is instructional for new hams through the experience of doing the activity. We often have antenna building classes or other electronics projects. The Mesa ARC focuses on maintaining a tight knit year round amateur radio community that can be called on when ever there is an emergency or fellow ham in need. Most of all, we love the great outdoors and bringing our ham gear with us!
