Amateur Radio Caravan & Camping Club.

Do you have an interest in AMATEUR RADIO, CAMPING or CARAVANNING?

You might not have heard of a group dedicated to both of these pursuits called "The Amateur Radio Caravan & Camping Club" The A.R.C.C. for short.

During the course of the year the A.R.C.C. holds about twelve to fourteen weekend rallies at various sites up and down the country, with the majority of the rallies within a 30 mile radius of Leicestershire. A holiday rally usually near the coast at the end of July each year.

We hold our rallies on sites which are exclusive to us usually a farmers grass field, with a water tap and somewhere to empty the chemical toilets. There is usually lots of space and some tall trees to put up wire antennas which would be frowned upon or even banned on commercial or national club sites.

We don't just "play radio" - we aim to attract the support of the whole family by our activities. This we believe is one good reason that the club has continued to thrive since it was founded back in 1979 by Alan G4EPN, John G4MTP and Roger G8RRB.

The A.R.C.C. is affiliated both to the RSGB and to ACCEO, an umbrella organisation for clubs holding a "Department of the Environment" Touring Caravan Exemption Certificate. We have no connection with any other body.

If you think that the A.R.C.C. might be of interest to you and your family, we will be delighted to let you have more information.
