About our club

Background

The Exmouth Amateur Radio Club (E.A.R.C.) was first formed by Ray Jones (President),
Bob White (G4IFP), Dave Hanson , Tony Rogers and others in February 1978 and held its meetings at Rolle College. The club moved to its current location, the premises of the Exmouth 6th scout group in Marpool Hill, adjacent to Phear Park in 1982. The club originally held the call-sign G4HOB (hobby), but added G1XRC and G0XRC as they became available. Both G4HOB and G1XRC have since lapsed, but G0XRC (eXmouth Radio Club) is still active. Club members are closely involved with local nodes and repeaters together with RAYNET.

Over the years many special event stations have been put on, the most memorable of which was probably GB4HB in September 1985 from Hayes Barton, East Budleigh, the birth place of Sir Walter Raleigh to celebrate 400 years of the establishment of Raleigh County, North Carolina.

Meeting times

The club meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month a 7.30pm
