The Seward Peninsula Amateur Radio Club has been in existence since 1970. Following a huge licensing and membership drive, the club established over 150 licensed members on the Seward Peninsula.
The club’s primary goal, at inception, was to place VHF repeaters along the extensive network of roads which lead from Nome. This allows members to communicate between summer camps and their homes, a communication first, unparalleled even to this day.
We also work closely with emergency organizations, allowing use of our repeater network in the event of Search And Rescue operations. SPARC is proud of our members and first-rate infrastructure. With these ingredients, communications are reliable within a 100 mile-plus radius of Nome.
