Club Night Information

The Membership has approved the move to the new club night location. I have made a link in the Navigation Bar giving directions and a google map to the new Club Night Location at Baker College in Flint. The Link is called "Club Night Info", please refer to it for directions. With this new location, we are able to meet during June and August as well. July will continue as an informal gathering for club members as a placeholder for our regular club meeting date each month.
We have made a lot of progress over the years and I think this move is good for the club and will not only attract more members but also bring back old members. We all need to give Amy, WA8MY, a big thank you for making this possible for us!

About the Genesee County Radio Club

The Genesee County Radio Club, Inc. (GCRC) was founded in 1933 in Flint Michigan by a group of amateur radio (ham) operators. From these early days, the club evolved into a group of citizens dedicated to communications excellence, right up to this day. Currently the group operates under the club callsign W8ACW. In addition the club operates 2 repeaters, one VHF and the other UHF. Also, the club holds a VE session at the Southern Lakes branch of Mott Community College on Thompson Road between Flint and Fenton. The club was awarded the Edison Amateur Radio Award in 1953 following the tireless work by club members following the devastating Beecher tornado in June of that year. Since that time, the club has participated in various emergency activities ranging from drills to traffic-handling for Operation Desert Storm, to support nets during the tremendous Midwest flooding during the summer of 1993.

GCRC provides a wide variety of programs and activities for its members. These include operating Field Day in June, the Michigan QSO Party in April and bringing in great speakers and offering ham radio classes to the public. Our annual holiday dinner and radio equipment auction are all enjoyable events!
