The Pennsylvania Amateur Radio Conference (PARC)

The South Mountain Radio Amateurs (SMRA) of the Carlisle, PA area are pleased to announce a conference devoted to inspiring new technologies in our beloved hobby.

We have been able to schedule speakers who are outstanding in their specialty. They speak at the level achieved by the annual conferences such as Microwave Update, Southern VHF Society, Central States VHF Society, Northeast Weak Signal Society and others throughout the US.

Attendance at these events often consumes more time from work and money than desired. Our intent is to make carpooling and low-costs in a single- day event the hallmark of the conference.

Target Audience:
Whether your interests are HF, VHF, microwave , 2 M FM, other, or all the above, this is an opportunity to expand your knowledge of what is possible today and what may be doable for you even sooner than YOU may imagine. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend a top flight conference focused on great presentations with ease of attendance. Seating will be limited, so sign up at your earliest possibility.
