Housatonic Amateur Radio Club

The Housatonic Amateur Radio Club was formed in 1995 to foster the development of Amateur Radio and advanced Ham Radio operating techniques, both through theory and on the air practice. To provide a suitable environment of camaraderie and support within which members, spouses and their children can obtain a better understanding of amateur radio, gain a proficiency in the art of amateur radio, and to have some fun.

HARC is an ARRL affiliated club!

In the Summer of 2017, HARC members (as part of a team) went to Paducah, KY under a NASA grant to launch high altitude research balloons during the solar eclipse. In addition to HARC members, the team consisted of Professors from the Univ of Bridgeport & Univ of Hartford, Graduate Engineering students, members of Bridgeport's Discovery Museum and the Connecticut Space Consortium.

May 6, 2018: Two students, Hritish Bhargava and Sam Zhang KC1HOD, won the Birkmaier Award for Promising young students in Science. Hritish was on the Eclipse Wx Balloon Team mentored by our club Trustee Gary WE1M and Sam was on the Eclipse Photography Balloon Team mentored by our club President Larry AB1JC during their 2017 trip to Paducah, KY. Award presentation took place at the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport CT.
There was also a book signing by Dr. D. Grinspoon Planetary Biologist and Dr A. Stern, Principal Investigator for the New Horizons spacecraft which went to the planet Pluto in 2015 and Kuiper belt object 2014 MU69 in January 2019.
