Nestled in the high country of Northern Arizona, at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, Flagstaff, Arizona is home to the Coconino Amateur Radio Club (CARC). The CARC includes members in the city of Flagstaff, Coconino County and much of Northern Arizona. We meet monthly on the second Thursday of every month at: 

New location for CARC meetings:  1650 S. Plaza Way. Pull in off S. Plaza Way and go to the far left behind the building on the left. (There are two buildings, both behind the vacant Sun West bank on Woodlands Blvd.)

Our meeting room is in the building on the left. Jason will have the door propped open. Big thanks to Bruce Sidlinger who is not only providing this room to CARC for free, but bought a table and some chairs for our use!

  (Except for Month of December, Special Meeting Location.)

Visitors are always welcome. Coconino Amateur Radio Club is a public service oriented club, providing communications services for local volunteer agencies and events.
