The Arizona Red Cross Communications Club provides Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) communications assistance to the Central and Northern Arizona Chapter as well as the entire Arizona and New Mexico Region of the American Red Cross. Our group consists of all volunteers who acquire, operate and maintain the equipment. We participate in local drills and emergency communication exercises, and if called upon, national and regional disasters (deployments). K7ARC is proud to be affiliated with the Amateur Radio Council of Arizona (ARCA), the state-wide resource for Amateur Radio in Arizona (www.arca-az.org), as well as the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), The National Association for Amateur Radio (www.arrl.org).

K7ARC operates 2 repeaters along with a UHF Winlink Packet/VARA FM gateway and an Echolink node in the Biltmore area of east Phoenix. The club also utilizes a repeater operated by the Mingus Mountain Repeater Group located at Central Ave. and Osborn.
