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.
The Housatonic Amateur Radio Club is an ARRL affiliated club!
"Direct Currents" is the official newsletter of the Housatonic ARC. It chronicles our club activities including contesting, awards, pictures and stories.
Direct Currents is published monthly. Issues are here in PDF format.

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.
