A Brief History
Founded in 1947, the Suffolk County Radio Club (SCRC) is one of Long Island’s oldest radio clubs, dedicated to preserving the past and promoting the future of Amateur Radio.
One of the earliest mentions of the club in print includes QST 1948-02 Vol 32 Iss 2 (link to archive.org) where the club is mentioned as participating is the 11th ARRL Field Day of ’47 on pages 39 and 118 which includes a fantastic picture of a portable cabin for operations and a mobile emergency unit (note: the Model T was a classic car even when this picture was taken)!
We accomplish our mission by encouraging innovation in ham radio, providing public service and educational opportunities, fostering goodwill within our community, all while having fun in the process. Visit our Discover Amateur Radio page to find out more about this exciting hobby!
