We are located at the Northern New Jersey headquarters of the
North Jersey regional chapter Chapter of the

It is a project started in 2005 by ARC volunteers to improve the ARC's ability to communicate during
disaster and emergency
Members are interested emergency communications using amateur (Ham) radio, and are (or
aspire to be) licensed by the FCC as Ham radio operators.
Membership in ARCSquared is free and is open anyone who is interested in assisting the chapter

welcome all, whether or not you currently possess a Ham "Ticket" or
license. If not, we will assist you in obtaining your ticket, and
give you hands on experience with our equipment.
