AARC Awarded 2020 Anchorage Mayor’s Community Grant

The Anchorage Amateur Radio Club (AARC) is proud to announce that it is one of the recipients of the Anchorage Mayor’s Community Grants program.  Mayor Ethan Berkowitz personally contacted the AARC today to convey his congratulations.

The Community Grants Program partners with organizations that support local economic development, neighborhood revitalization, and assistance for vulnerable residents.  Community grants give a boost to worthy organizations working to make our community safer, healthier, and more resilient.

The AARC’s grant was requested for the acquisition of a complement of digital/analog electronics trainers and multimeters.  The equipment is to be used to enhance the course offerings and provide hands-on training related to radio and electronics at the Radio Science and Operations Center (RSOC).  We offer many thanks to the Mayor and the Municipality of Anchorage for helping us enhance our educational program offerings!
